Checkmate

Checkmate

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Ramblings of a raging mind...

"
I walk breathless,
keeping within
the circle of life,

my laments go unheard
as ​I suffocate, run loose
and eventually break free...

love binds in ways
I couldn't fathom before,
tormenting;

and I'm caught off guard
as life calls -

checkmate!

One can feel your ramblings, wanderings over Life's board, your feet growing weary in the chase. It can be like this too often, play by play, move by move, ultimately yielding to the game. Your poetry, your phrases, your dark song is so powerfully confessed, dear Yumna. I can only hope you get to kick Life's butt next time. Believe me, there's always a next time.

Yeah, life can seem to taunt unmercifully sometimes as if testing. You intrigue 'Life' and so it selects you for some of it's prime sadistic treatment - 'let's see how hard you reallllly are then...?'
I think to be fair it then rewards if you triumph without going over to the dark-side (sheesh it's always Star Wars with me ...lol)

Great imagery - finely penned Yumna as always-ish

Ramblings perhaps but, an emotionl poem.. whether true or othersise. Has an air of desperation perhaps.. 'Chekmate' has a finality to it.. both sides of the coin.
Life has a way of turning dreams upside down.
