Lovely Games Part 2

Lovely Games Part 2

A Poem by E.A. Spain

He caused me to fall
He changed my views
He taught me a lesson or two
He showed me what's right isn't always true
And the sky isn't always blue
And then he left me here to rue
He left me here to rue the days
That I spent with him falling in love in different ways
And as I changed I hoped it was just a phase
But now he's gone and I remain the same
And all this destruction around me is for me to blame
It was all foreseen so I have no shame
That I lost at playing his lovely game


She taught me to fall

She changed my views

I learned love was a weapon to use

She showed me how to land, before I flew

And tried to teach me to see things through

I had to leave because I knew

I knew some of the days

Weren't black and white, some were grays

Dealing with inner demons I hoped it was just a phase.

But she thought I left and I've finally changed

And the beauty I've become is the beast she's tamed

I've lost my queen due to playing games

Would do anything to have her back, without shame.


And to look into your gleaming eyes and to kiss those lips was a treat I could not refuse

Because each moment took my breath away and that was something I was willing to lose

I let my heart rather than my mind choose

You became the muse

Author's Note

This is a collaboration (may 2016) I did with @ErictheWriter on twitter as an extension to Lovely Games. Please share this if you have social media so that he can see because I don't have a twitter anymore. My writing is the purple and his was the blue.

Featured Review

That is a lovely collaborated poem.
I love the simple (though the thought-process must have been much more complex) approach,
the dynamics of relationships between man and woman.
I love how the woman's perspective and the man's different views clash on certain aspects and yet agree on others, on a mutual and compassionate level, showing that deep down, although things may have gone slightly wrong, since things don't always turn out the way we wish, that love, the love which attracted them to each other in the first place, is the most motivating factor.
The dialogue is like the typical blame-game that happens when relationships hit rock bottom.
Yet here it's interesting how the two sides of the coins, the two sides of the story (man and woman's) are
given platform here.

This poem certainly speaks volumes, resonating with millions of people (especially ex. and current couples).

The overall flow, tone, emotion, and word-choice are perfection.

E. A. Spain, from what I've been reading so far of your work, you are a Genius and probably don't know it. You write with such soul, with such depth and divine perspective on things.

I'd love and would buy a book of yours on the shelves worldwide.
Keep up the good work.

May The Creator of Heaven and Earth bless you and open your sixth sense and third eye to give you much more insight and foresight
since, like me, love and truth drive you to bring others the light.

I love your words (and it takes a lot for me to say this).

I enjoyed the ride in these words.
"Because each moment took my breath away and that was something I was willing to lose
I let my heart rather than my mind choose
You became the muse"
I liked how you closed the poem. Accepting heart decisions and finding a new muse. We need our muses. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

This is a good collaboration. It flows well and each piece complements the other. I particularly like the sincerity and humility conveyed in this poem. And, though not stated, it seems each person here gained something valuable from the other, during and after the relationship. "And all this destruction" perhaps became the foundation for something new, a new outlook, a new relationship, a new life. Nice work!
