we could always play hide and seek
though i know what it is she
wants to hide (her heart)
and what it is she really
wants me to seek (her approval)
but i’m game for anything
so i close my eyes
and begin to count
i don’t reach three
before she is gone
she doesn’t leave an echo
just a footprint on my chest

Ugh. Cold. Well written and most enjoyable!
Saying goodbye is difficult at times. I’ve known how it felt like to have someone you thought was special, just leave without a word. I think I’ve done this once or twice before, for various reasons and maybe also because I was cowardly at the time. Superb poem… I can get lost in your words so easily,
Thank you, Rose. 😍
Powerful, if sad! The brevity and quick cadence of the poem mimic and reinforce its message well. Bravo, Crow!
Damn, so effective, from the hide and seek lines to the bang of a finish.
Thank you! And thank by taking time to come by my site and comment!
