HIDE AND SEEK

unrecognizable-woman-closing-eyes-with-headscarf-4177425love was never an abstraction
could not be laid to rest
for love was never born

but forgotten by the morn
or soured and stuffed with scorn

so don’t be shy of your inaction
do not cry for what is lost
for love is just around the corner

behind the curtain
in the dresser drawer

to be found, but not reborn
