Hide and Seek

I saw her, standing there

 

She looked lost, lonely, and scared

 

She didn’t like to be around people

 

So she hid where no one could see her

 

But I did, I saw her

 

No matter where she ran I seemed to find her

 

It felt unusual and quite frightening

 

I could feel her fear and her chest tightening

 

She did something wrong, something unforgiveable

 

She ran going nowhere, it was unpredictable

 

She tripped over a pile of debris

 

She hurt herself and began to scream

 

I went to go help her and

 

Suddenly she stopped

 

I stepped back and

 

She stood up

 

She was gonna run

 

I told her “no”

 

I walked towards her as

 

She tried not to open her eyes

 

Because I can’t seem to hide from me

Me
