check but not worthy of mate

she tried to teach me how to play chess
i didn’t have the attention span to learn the finer rules
as i tried and failed
i realized i would always be the pawn taken by the queen
no matter how i tried to be the knight
she never saw me as the king worthy of her time
yet i graciously am willing to be tipped over
as long she takes the time out of her busy day to do it herself
anything to prove to her
she deserves to win

at everything

i wonder how many pawns love the queen from afar
unable to ever express themselves
in her majesty
