East (an acrostic poem)

Earning a spot among the pantheon

Always was Jungsoon’s goal

So the mouse flew in his hand as he took out his opponent

Taking the of World Champion of Starcraft 2

My Brain Dump (an acrostic poem)

Musings I needed to write

Yearning to go to sleep, I throw this out there

 

Believing in yourself and trusting your inner voice

Rarely will steer you wrong

Ask the questions that need answers

Inscribe on your soul the names of your loved ones

Never sell yourself short

 

Determine your guiding star and follow it

Until you reach your destination

Maintain due diligence on the world around you

Push your limits to grow your boundaries

Catching Up (an acrostic poem)

Cat and mouse described Nat’s relationship with her peers

At least that’s how Nat saw it

To be the mouse was tiring, but Nat put up with it

Coming to grips with being a target was built into her persona

Having success from an early age was a mixed blessing

Inspiration to some, a threat to most in this male dominated world

Never really at easy in the power dynamic

Given that women were still looked at as either being subservient or a bitch

 

Until men would stop pawing her figuratively or physically

Perhaps she would need to become the cat in this relationship

Crash (an acrostic poem)

Clicking the mouse as fast as she could

Rachel laughed as she blew up three of her competitors

All she needed to do now was make her sprint to home base

Suddenly frames started dropping almost as fast as her f bombs

Her screams echoed as the screen went black

Checkmate (an acrostic poem)

Calculating the best move

He pointed his wingman to move in

Everything seemed perfect about her

Cascading red hair framing her heavenly pale face

Knowing her friend was fully engaged by his man, it was now show time

Moving in for the kill he broke out his fifty million dollar smile

Asking her what was her drink of choice

Too bad she pointed out she was the designated driver

Even though she held a gin and tonic in her hand

Celebrate (an acrostic poem)

Cliff looked at the assembled friends and hung an appreciative smile on his face

Everything was too perfect to those in attendance

Looks were more important than any bitter reality

Even if behind the looks rotted what was left of his decaying heart

Being a zombie with a human veneer should have been easier

Reaching forward to blow the candles out, Cliff’s only wish was for it to by quickly

Aggie smiled her know it all smile as she could see the monster she had created

Tearing another part of his humanity away, he blew out the flames

Eventually the pain would end, but not before that smile
