hide and seek

emotions playing a game of hide and seek

though the game wears on, week after week

what excellent hiders they are

not to be found, even as i yell,

"i give up!", "help?"

searched under the covers of my heart 

behind the closed doors of the dark rooms in my mind

dusty spaces underneath the bed of my brain

where could they be?

did they leave?

what a shame!

we were in the middle of playing a game.

Emotions hiding behind an eye,
Shed them now have a cry.
Don't be overcome by this thief,
Shed them now to bring relief.

Emotions playing hide and seek,
Hope by now they've reached their peak.
The game is finished and you have won,
Enjoying vitamin D from the sun.
