child-like

Why is it
that even when
I am home
alone
in the dark
under the covers
I still cover my eyes
when I cry?


What is it
about
my tears
my sadness
my lostness
my pain
that I still cannot
bear?
That I believe will stay hidden
if I just cover my eyes.


A wicked game of
hide-and-seek
I play with
my own
soul.
