National Poetry Month 6 – Won

Sometimes it feels like you get
one shot at companionship
one opportunity to set the board
move your pieces
and capture a queen.
When she’s there in front of you
and her smile is unbearable
because it makes you blush
you wonder at how every roadblock,
and every setback,
every Checkmate,
only led to her.
