We stare at each other
above the green table
in our hands, two cards.
We played poker, as we stared.
Lust was visible, so was desire
Each card in hand we raised the bets
Playing with love, it was dangerous
We took risks, not holding back
I could see it in his eyes.
Just like he could see it in mine.
The love, want and need
I had to control myself
From reaching over and taking him
We checked for a round,
our heads filled with uncontrollable thoughts
I knew what he was thinking
About the nights we had
the love we shared
The final card came out
Ironically it was the ace of heart
I felt a lump in my throat, putting it all in
He did the same, taking risks once again
I met his eyes, resisted the temptation
He put down his cards, with a look or triumph
Out of luck, a full house
I sighed before putting mine down
I saw his eyes widened and I smirked.
"I guess now we know who'll be on top"
I grinned and grabbed him
among the moans our cards lay forgotten
In my hand I knew I had won
The Royal Flush of Hearts.
