Hide and Seek


I just wanted someone 

to think about me

and as much as I have 

pushed you away,

you always appear 

out of the woodwork.


Blending into the walls,

you constantly find me

right when I need you.


Though I hide,

I hide in plain sight

waiting, knowing 

you will find me. 


You make me feel special

and wanted and desired

and like I matter. 


And that is the feeling

I have always craved

but at the same time

you don't truly know me

so it's not genuine.


I hide one more time

on one hand hoping 

that you will go away

but still wanting

you to pursue me anyway.
