Poker Face

if you have any feelings
you’ve hid them from me
I look in your eyes
but there’s nothing to see
I ask pointed questions
they act as a test
but you hold your cards
so close to the vest
I really can’t tell
if there’s anything there
with your great poker face
and your solemn, blank stare
so, I come out and ask you
as straight as can be
if you have any feelings
in your heart for me
“the game isn’t over”
is what you reveal
“if you want to keep playing
then shut up and deal”


  1. Really like the clever play on words in this.

  2. Charlie, I liked this a lot. I like rhyme and you pulled this off well...add a clever closing...well done! Vb

  3. there comes a time the cards need to be laid out so that you dont lose...nice one charlie...

  4. I enjoyed this one a lot. The connection with cards, word play, and I agree the end was clever. :)

    My one shot is Oracle of the Feminine. It is not the post up today. :)

  5. Oh, you got me with that last bit! Funny.

    You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold em... long time since I heard that song, but I bet it stands up today.

  6. Clever and, well... to the point. She sounds like the poker face queen
