games for adults (20160821)

we could always play hide and seek
she says
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
