Night Games

You must play my games,
enacted in clear light of day,
while I have now found
new friends in darkness.
Come closer, tip toe towards
the walls that can't  see,
their field of force, sucks energy.
I am not now your child,
you only had me for a while
I might hear you so will turn.
Don't be surprised to learn
you have no sight of me,
for I have departed,
knowing I shall never be retrieved.
Seeing is not believing,
and you must believe what
you cannot see.
Come, I will be here always,
just out of reach, the child you sent,
while resentment still grows,
from good intentions that flowed,
all those years ago
