I play with the shadows on my wall,
I play to deal with the stories of the day,
I play to leave behind what growing up I have done,
I play to keep the devil at bay,
I play with the imprints my closed fists
created on my hand,
I play to carve a face,
I play to ask the questions I keep finding answers to,
I play to erase all, any trace.
I play with the stories entangled in my hair,
I play to comb down the fears,
I play for in them I don't miss the night,
I play to tie down the pain.
with my life,
with my fate,
with the marks on my face.
with my breaths,
with my desire
every game you want me to play.
