Games

She hid beneath the stairs,

darkness surrounding like a blanket,

footsteps resounded,

as a heavy form bounded.

 

She waited with bated breath,

as if cheating death,

a hand reached out and grabbed,

held on to her little hand.

 

Her scream broke the fragile calm,

‘Once more’ she cried,

‘I’ll hide, you seek’

and on went the games.

 

-S.M.

 

Daily Prompt – Fragile.
