Sink Your Heart

Someone once said, ~Love is a game of battleship. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, and sometimes it destroys you.~ I think its safe to say that in certain ways matters of the heart is synonymous with the game kids and not to mention adults truly enjoy/enjoyed playing known as battleship. How and in what way? For the most part, a person can in all intense and purposes win or lose to the point where the immense impact can destroy you in a positive or negative way. Thinking about it further, there is a metaphorical grid within the human heart and each ship placed somewhere on it is considered to be a representation of thoughts, feelings, as well as emotions that can either be a direct hit or a clear miss, especially when it involves someone you're genuinely interested in.

As I've said before, there is a metaphorical grid within the human heart and each ship placed somewhere on it is considered to be a representation of thoughts, feelings, as well as emotions that can either be a direct hit or a clear miss, especially when it involves someone you're genuinely interested in. Essentially, from that point forward it's an absolute guessing game, in a manner of speaking, in attempting to locate and hit the exact whereabouts of the aforementioned ships previously mentioned above, which are absolutely unpredictable. Why? Although, the ships in the game remain in place until the end a person's thoughts, feelings, and/or emotions aren't making it quite difficult to target their exact locations because they can constantly change causing it to become an even greater challenge to hit to say the least.

Without a doubt, one of the main aspects of playing the game battleship is using the small pegs that come in the color white and red signifying whether it's a miss or a hit. In a sense, being able to figure out each shot being taken pertaining to someone special can most definitely be a tough and frustrating situation indeed filled with tremendous amount of anxiety ridden with self doubt. True, an individual can find himself/herself with a grid full of white pegs because of always overthinking their next possible shot. However, one would rather experience taking the initiative to their so called opponent on the other side who hopefully reciprocates the red pegs representing trust, faith, hope, honor, respect, honesty, intimacy, compassion, understanding, contentment, commitment, communication, etc. that were able to successfully hit the ships located within the metaphorical grid of his/her heart.

Let me ask you this question in regards to playing battleship, have you ever cheated in order win? Of course, we've all done it in a sneaky or in clearly outright way and it would all be in good fun. Unfortunately, it's a sad state of affairs when making the decision to cheat for the expressed purpose of establishing a strong, worthwhile relationship causes the person in question to be personally destroyed. Granted, taking the easy route in being able to know just enough about a guy/girl doesn't take any effort whatsoever and truly disrespectful. If a person is genuinely interested in someone they'll play the game properly, so to speak, without being sneaky or have any hidden agendas/ulterior motives. What it primarily comes down to is having a "what do you have to lose mentality" knowing full well the meaningful shots you do end up taking may very well find its targets while others will clearly miss by a mile.

In retrospect, when comparing love/true love to the game of battleship you have to realize it's not a game at all. You see, the human heart is not something to be played with or manipulated to one's own advantage showing a lack of maturity and respect along with the wrong mindset in the pursuit of a forever best friend. If you think about it, there is some strategy involved even though the best kind of strategy is having no idea in what you're doing at all. Hey, trust me when I say I don't have any idea what I'm saying or doing half the time and even though my shots may not be on target I'm still calling them out in hopes there is a direct hit on a certain female's heart out there whoever she may be. In the end, be smart about the shots being made and at the same time take a risk every once in while concerning true happiness so much so it could potentially sink your heart more so for better than for worse.
