Games.

Say what you mean,
Don’t speak from
The side of your mouth.

_____________________
Look me in the eye
During conversations,
Don’t look
North or South.
_____________________

Walk straight towards me,
Rather than
Zig-zagging,
Dodging responsibilities
And imaginary bullets.
_____________________

Hold me close
With both hands,
Try your best not to
Stab me in the back.
_____________________

Make my heart skip
But
Don’t play games with it.
