The Game


It was a clever game
you played
I can see that now
Reeling me in
just enough
to keep me hooked
But not so close
that I struggled
You scattered
just enough seeds
so I was tempted
But not so many
that my hunger abated
You said just enough
to make me feel special
But not so much
that I took it for granted
You were a puzzle
I thought I had solved
But you were gone
long before
the final piece
fell into place
