my queen of hearts

i play my cards close to my chest
but I made a wrong turn
and ended up along a river
in Texas.

she caught me staring;
(the one-eyed jack)
she could tell I had a tale to tell.
there is no limit to this love;
i was the king;
her, the queen;
the perfect pair.

i’m flushed;
she has my heart,
so I got her a diamond.
And now we have this full house;
i’m all in.

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
