Hiding easily

Seeking

Little you

A favourite game

Hide & seek

It stays with you

The hiding

The searching

The finding

Curious you

Always

Protect yourself

A physical game

A break

From visibility

When life

Makes being

Found

Dangerous

As mortality

Uncoils

Itself

Over

You get used to it
