no childhood game

like a game of tag / evading It, i avoid / even saying It
hiding, holding my breath / i jump in shock when It still / finds me and tags me
not freeze tag this time / even though the pain can freeze you / in its very tracks
comfort finally / in that little white pill and / sweet welcome slumber
