He looks through the cracks,
Listening to the whispers that surround him,
Seeing the dark shadow passing over the creaky floorboards,
Trying to keep his breathing low and steady.
His heart bangs inside his chest,
He's used to this not so fun game of Hide&Seek,
And he knows what'll happen when he's found....
So he peers through the cracks,
His step father not seeing him just yet,
But already ready to make him suffer some more.
He doesn't deserve this,
His life is too unfair,
But he manages to hide it and escape it all,
With one simple smile........
And everyone of course believes it and falls for it.
