The Chase

by Kitty Cat Lady   Nov 27, 2017

You play with words like toys
Making them twist and turn
They lodge under my skin
Oh how I wish I'd learn

I know how this will end
And I know it won't be fun
But I can't resist your charms
Your words have me undone

I'll fight this inner battle
Between my mind and yours
Not wanting to be your prey
I should show you the door

You only want what you can't have
It's game over if you win
The chase is what you really want
It's what makes your world spin

I don't want to play this game
But to stop it I have to concede
So I'll accept defeat this one last time
And maybe then you'll leave!

    Miss Kitty, oh I am so familiar with that game! You'll do right by bowing out now. Stay strong!
