I carry this feeling of longing
It’s with me everyday
It’s there when I look through my window
and see some children play
A game of hide and seek
A game that never gets old
I still play it daily
Even though I’m 23 years old
I have no playmates to play with
So I play all by myself
My feelings hide
I don’t want to seek
Though the feelings come out, eventually
When I see the moms picking up their children
There are hugs, smiles and kisses
While all I feel are bruises
Tears and empty wishes
Why can’t we be like them mom
Why can’t we be happy together
I’m tired of playing hide and seek
This can’t go on forever
