  1. “Checkmate” the knight said as he rode his horse across the field, blocking the king from any escape. The king sighed and knelt, awaiting what he had anticipated over the last few moves. The opposing king drew his sword and walked towards the loser. He swung. The white crown fell to the ground and the white horses fled.

  3. And somehow, in front of these people, I was still defending you. You left me that night, you left me to walk myself out, walk myself home. And I defended your social inabilities, I said they had to really know you. I could have punched myself. But we’re through, so it doesn’t matter anyway. You used me like a pawn, so go ahead and say it.

    Checkmate.

  8. “ No, no checkmate. I’m the Queen, but that’s beside the point: this is not a game. My Beauty is very real and sacred and must be gracefully touched, not grabbed. If you move slowly, you’ll seduce me; move quickly and the only thing you’ll know is an empty struggle. Adopt the pace of Nature,” said the World “her secret is patience. Do not hurry into each new day. Open your eyes in the morning as gifts and may your first exhalation be exaltation. Stop to greet my four directions and ask them about the secret one: no, not north, south, east or west but the one inside your chest; yes, on your heart’s compass. And everyday, just for a day, may your hours be roses and may their thorns protect you from the hurried hands of human time that always touch but rarely feel — and may they guard the nests in the garden that grows in you. That and grow and grow until you will see an opening, a hatching. Until you hear a booming, a blooming. Until you feel a warmth, a ripening. Until the timekeeper in your hearts most accurate chamber feels the time has come to open your wings, show your flowers and share your fruits with those who skillfully reach. That is, strive to touch, not struggle to grab.”

  10. It is amazing how we sometimes put ourselves at checkmate. We make other people responsible of what is happening to us but oftentimes we don’t realize that it is in our hands to actually change things and get out of difficult situations. It is all in our head and every problem has got a solution.

  11. There are no moves left. Defeat is complete. “Ha!” I say. I pick up my king and gab it into my opponents face. Blood and screams insue. I use the chess board to silence the screams and spread the red translucent beauty onto the walls.

  12. checkmate for the win,
    but winning isn’t everything.
    i’d rather play the game just to see how it works out
    and, even better,
    read how you play.
    watching someone play chess says a lot about their character.

  14. As a kid, I worshiped Artemis Fowl. Not because he was a nice character, but because he was brilliant. I remember cursing at myself because I didn’t do well enough on a test. “Artemis wouldn’t have done that,” I’d say through clenched teeth. He reminds me of chess.

  15. Checkerboard black and white
    When do the lines blur?
    Or is it always black and white,
    Even when one takes over the other?

  16. You could have killed me
    in three billion ways
    but instead you
    chose two —
    you told me
    that you loved me
    and then you
    took it back
    and the only thing I was
    left with is
    the carving you
    left me with
    on my right thigh
    (right underneath your name)
    that said checkmate.

  17. You could have killed me
    in three hundred billion ways
    but instead you
    chose two–
    you told me
    that you loved me
    and then you
    took it back,
    and the only thing I was

    inscribed
    on my right thigh
    (right underneath your name)
    that said ‘checkmate.’

  18. “checkmate,” she said. he looked down at his hands, folded into hers. “I wish you didn’t have to go”, he says. She starts to fade, and he begins to sob, just like he did when he was 17 and his mother died. Only this time, hes 71, and just lost the love of his life.

  24. Checkmate she thought as she leaned back in the executive chair. The executive chair in the corner office. Floor to ceiling windows gave her the backdrop she said she would kill for. She hadn’t needed to go to such extremes. She just gave him the rope to hang himself and he had done the rest. She remembered the first time she’d been in this office. He’d reached across his desk, put his hand on her knee and said he’d teach her all she needed to know.

  25. I stared at the checkered board for long minutes, my brow scrunched in concentration. I didn’t hear my opponents taunts or feel the gazes of the crowd; as far as I was concerned, it was just me and the board, just like it always was.
    Suddenly, I grinned, a sinister grin, one I’ve seen replayed on the monitors many times and, as I looked up and met my opponents eyes, I knew he knew it was all over. Without taking my eyes from his, my hand moved out, wrapped around the piece in question, and moved it into position. “Check…”
    The whole crowd held it’s breath.
    “…mate,”

  29. I win! Game over. I love winning. It’s really the purpose of playing for me. That sounds terrible. It’s the truth though. I love to win. I own it. My dad said if you are average you are “the best of the worst of the worst of the best.” I have no interest in being average. I want to win – to be the best.
