Hide And Seek
Like a child playing hide and seek,
I saw your unfamiliar face
and found it intriguing.
I wanted to crawl inside your mind
and be overwhelmed with comfort
while I explored the depths
of your four corners
that you held captive.
But I reached the rusty gate to find
that while you hid
behind a façade of smoke
and fingers intertwined,
there were simply cobwebs and darkness
where I swore I’d find the key.
Hide and seek with you
turned out to be a game
that only deceived me.
