Betrayal

Betrayal, a kiss carrying no meaning, a hug not as trustworthy as the previous. Words no longer distinguishing value as promises drown in expectations of disappointment. Betrayal compared to ice, cold as the premeditation of gentle water forming a cube of ice, hardened in damaging what it touches. The closeness of bondage tampered with elements of suspensional beliefs, triggering curiosity as it paralyzes any hope of good resurrected.  People are capable of change….. betrayal is never forgotten like a dream that’s easy to interpret.

Tic Tac Toe (X’s & O’s)

I can remember being a child, tic tac toe was the game I played. Such a competitive game that required logical thinking. Today’s era has transformed the very game that defined the odds of trickery to the new profound form of “hugs (x) & kisses (o). The idea of manipulation could’ve possibly originated from a simple game that a child could master within minutes…. on the other hand, as an adult it has become far too difficult to outmaster the mindset of a child that’s trapped inside the being of an adult. Nine blocks, five moves, 4 choices….. is it really worth it?
