Hide And Seek - Poem by Kathryn Garner

the one whos blood grows to pitches
when she bleeds
the one you feel
in a game of hide and seek
from the world
from your eyes
with time our hearts turn to stone
a weight where they lie

hard to breath, but she feels you
feel her suffocate
take the burden from her lungs
but lifes too late
the decks of fate
she convienced you
that theres time to wait
till loves first hate
sets it

you feel her, though shes not there
weight on your mind
but you promise you dont care
lovers of shadows. hide from the world
both got nothing
shes got you boy.
and youve got that girl
engraved and saved
in the back of your savory mind
she repeats that line
and it carresses you just right
just right there

and you take her from her hiding place
dead in the shrouds of shadows
too hide her breathtaking face
and you took her breath away
boy, you stole her breath away
with your words
now shes so weak with her words
dead from your actions
that delt her with so much hurt

eyes begging, give me a kiss from real life
you stole her heart away
so she killed it with a knife
she wont live for lovers crime
you stole her breath away
while she promised far more time

theres a weight on her lungs
killing her hidden voice.
its your stone heart
a weight that lies there
and she falls apart

playing like a little girl
hide and seek from the world
that she derived from
and now shes all gone
the game went wrong
and now shes lost
so lost in your eyes
as her body hides
and dies
