I’m the one behind the boulder: you can’t see me.
Always the advantage belongs to me.
On my console: you the white blip on a green screen.
Pull the trigger: you explode light unseen.

Close up too close: I can smell your breath and sweet sweat.
Gamer convention: was that where we met?
I feel you weight as we begin our last dance.
Breathe in my ear that’s the end of romance.

We fumble together, it’s a surprise attack.
You lead me, step by step, I can’t lead back.
We find each other’s knife, both strike together.
Last time a soldier was this close, I died to her.
