Hide and Seek

Hide and Seek

A Poem by Kajal Gulabani

I wish 'Hide and Seek' was just a game,
That pampered our childhood days,
Alien were we to this world of mystery,
Shower on me that radiance again.

Where art those ignorant eyes?
Which knew nothing but path to the real.

I wish this game had it's confines to only FUN,
Sigh ! Clouds of lies have spread beyond
The fog of truth and winds of faith,
Storms of deceit has long begun.

Hide a little flaw , Hide a huge blow,
Hide as well the demon within.
Alas! Seek the rains of happiness then,
Did they rinse your souls though ?

Thank you..
I enjoyed the use of early modern English. It's a task in itself to utilize it without an air of pomp, but you managed quite well. As for the material, the best poetry transcends all cultures by finding common joys, anxieties, and regrets in ALL people. This piece does exactly that. Kudos on a very well written and compelling work.

welcome
Compelling read, many thoughts went into this one. If only childhood could be innocence and fun and last a lifetime. Nicely pen'd. Love the last line...

'Did they rinse your souls though ?'

That one echoed in my head!

Yes childhood kept us innocent but think of the colour in our journey across uncertain terrain. Food for poets me thinks.

True.. :) :)
Great use of the language and your thoughts. Hide and seek does become a adult game. But the game is not fun anymore. A perfect ending for the outstanding poetry.
