Hide and Seek for Lovers

by Quietly Versed   Jan 14, 2009

Suddenly I have lost you
Your disposition shifting like the hands of time,
the emotion of you revolving.

Our resolve to make no game of this
Perplexed with hypocrisy,
Which of us is hiding, which of us is seeking?

This effortless knowledge of you
Takes place in the heart of ambiguity.
Like a child I find you and then conceal myself.

Infantile and amused at the thrill of you,
I close my eyes as if to count to ten.
Intentionally allowing you to slip from sight,
Unsure if I will discover you once more.

And you hesitantly withdraw,
Unsure if I will open my eyes to find you.
