Perfect Partners

In crime he was my partner
Of desire for luxuries
We traveled far and near
Scamming the unsuspecting
Till I got caught
…….. Betrayal!

Four years later
Credit to good behavior
I searched for those
Who owed me one
Predictably they obliged
Indiscreet he had been
Leaving trails to be seen
At a distance, there he was
…….. Exposed!

Complacent, distracted
Forgot who he mentored
Recalling every lesson
Covering every angle
Blended into the veil
Underneath every radar
Like I never existed
Persisted, though prepared
Held back till the hour was right
At its best when served cold
…….. Revenge!

~there comes a time
when the student
becomes a master
of the game~

(For the one who will be Master of the Game)

  1. wonderful experiment, each story ending with its title and the whole story ended with a powerful punch line it read like a Chekov and Maupassant ending!

    It’s a great read, this ‘different’, story narration. Love the way you end it.

    Great work. Hope you write more soul-stirring, uplifting, experimental, and all other kinds of poetry this year. :)

    Take care!
