It’s that fear that controls me

we play undercover games

He pretends that he is courage

and I’ll pretend I never knew


He’ll deal me a set of cards

and I’ll play along,

but suspect to be cheated


He tries to charm me

with the way he deals

his fancy fingers

making the cards dance beautifully,


in front of me


I am not phased

And see the glint

of a red heart

up his sleeve


I let it happen

while he wins my dignity

I draw strength in the fact


at least it was courage

and not fear

that fooled me
