The Game!

The Game!

written by: Sunita Singh

 

I climb up
You pull me down!
Patiently like a spider
Spinning a web
You wait to entangle me!

Then, with a sinister, sadistic pleasure
You watch me –
Trying, yelping, crying
Struggling to free myself
And You
With your hourglass ticking
Suddenly declare –
The game is over!

And I, with my bleeding bruises
Spent and tired of fighting
Give in to You
Yes, I accept defeat!

You are the winner!
And I – your slave!
