Hide And Seek


We were together
in a mail-box,
though stayed aloof
but I knew you are
my dear neighbor.
when I felt alone
and desperately
wanted your face,
opening the door
I wished to give
you my caress.
Thus we played,
you appeared to
make me disappear.
Masquerade!
you danced
behind a mask,
I found you out.
I stretched my hands,
but shockingly I
saw she wasn't you
another revered guy.
It happened time and again.
Hide and seek,
play, play with me,
and never bid good bye.

    Hide and seek was a fun game that we played as children. I see
    and feel in your poem a sense of belonging. Even though we may
    hide our feelings sometimes we still try to make known our deepest
    emotions to someone we are infatuated with. Lovely. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
