Hide and Seek

Running through an empty house

counting down the seconds.

One last place to find

One last place to hide.

 

Ready or not

here he comes.

 

Drip.

Drip.

Drip.

Hear the dripping of the tap

from the bathroom she once was

left running in the haste

to hide from echoing laughter.

 

Ready or not

here he comes.

 

Stuffed animals

lined against the wall

watching as she’s found

watching as she’s pinned to the ground.

Smiling at their owner

smiling, smiling

as she’s fighting.

 

Ready or not

here he comes

with his song:

 

Scream, scream

all you want.

No more running

no more hiding

once you’re found

I’ve got you bound.
