Smoke and Mirrors

The black had etched, intricately entwined white

That had led them into vigorous war in time

The rich hue had faded into oblivion for life

Knights galloped, armies crashed into maritime

The white queen had fallen, it was the end of wartime

That he could return home for awhile

Joy tipped his lips up at the corners in a smile

A mere pawn in the game but to feel, worthwhile
