Why do You Hide From Me?

I have my own doubts and reluctance when it comes to this poetry, if at all it can be called one. I wrote it almost a year ago, and have never come about to posting it. So now you know how much I was hesitant to share this with anyone. It has taken me a year and another three days to have the courage to share this with you or anyone for that matter.

So now before I change my mind, I am going to hit publish, and let you guys judge me..



Where are you hiding away from me?

Why, dear love, why do you hide from me?


Are you hiding beneath the sky?

The sky that is dark and gloomy

The empty face

That is raining down on me?


Are you hiding betwixt the stars?

The stars, magnificent and twinkling

A beautiful constellation

That is shining upon me?


Are you hiding behind the full moon?

A moon, calm and comforting

The complete faรงade

That is spreading its borrowed light on me?


Are you hiding among the woods?

The woods and trees that seem all lonely

The empty silence

That is lumbering down on me?

Are you hiding behind the sun?

The sun that is bright and radiant

The blinding fury

That is scorching down on me?


Are you hiding behind the mountains?

The mountains that are far and away

The scratchy road

That is soaring upon me?


Are you hiding among the seas and oceans?

The oceans that are waving in

The tumultuous uproar

That is really trembling me?


Are you hiding among the winds?

The winds, rapid and raw

A soft touch

That is truly whistling down on me?


In vain you hide from me

Why, dear love, why do you hide from me?


Thank you once again, if you have come this far!! Did not expect you to.

      1. Oh, thatโ€™s okay. Perhaps because it is something different than usual. But I did enjoy it, it has a sort of freshness (maybe because you described all these natural bodies, the sun and the stars) and the imagery is wonderful๐Ÿ˜Š

    Although I must say I have two left hands (if that expression exists) when it comes to poetry ๐Ÿ˜€
