THE WINDOW

Alley dark
whitechapelwitch

She peeks through the curtain.

Of this I am certain,

she knows nothing of fear

as I draw myself near.

A smile is on her face

as I quicken my pace.

The window grows dark

but she left her mark.

I know which room she does live in.

It must be tidy as a pin.

Her dark eyes have beseeched me.

I know she will complete me.

I just have to summon the courage

before my heart goes back to storage.

We belong together as one.

I won’t stop until I have won.

I raise my hand to the door.

My tears are ready to pour.

I won’t step away.

I’ve come to here stay.

LET THE WORLD COME TO ME

 

 

Tall windows to let in the day.

The sun rises and shoots its ray.

I watch people saunter by.

Peek into windows up high.

Nothing can get past me.

I’m free as you can see.

To let the world come home to me.

I’m as happy as I can be.

WHERE ARE ALL THE PEOPLE?

 

CNV00025 Thames footpath (by jim sedgley)

 

WHERE ARE ALL THE PEOPLE?

There were people here.

Women pushing strollers.

Joggers flying by.

Tourists with cameras.

Where did they go?

Take a peek inside.

Inside the tunnel.

You’ll find them all.

Lined up like packages.

Happy Birthday!

DANGLING HORROR

DANGLING HORROR

It dangles before me.

A horror to be felt.

All consuming.

Almost tasted.

Walls closing in.

Becoming a coffin.

My fears circle round.

Waiting to be unleashed.

Darkness holds me in place.

Stiff as a corpse.

A tiny dot of light.

Showing me the way.

A peek at my tormentor.

A glimpse of hell.

A GLIMPSE OF PARADISE

frogsign: modernambition: Glimpse of the Otherside

A GLIMPSE OF PARADISE

I just want a glimpse.

A little peek.

Of paradise.

Before it’s gone.

For good.

Could we hold onto paradise?

Keep it close.

Keep it for ourselves.

We could.

In our dreams.

In our memories.

Hold it close to your heart.

A PEEK

A PEEK

Just a peek.

Is all it takes.

To get a feeling.

To get a glimpse.

Into a different life.

Do I want to know?

Do I dare?

To take that peek.

To see more.

To know more.

How do I not dare?

I want to see.

I want to know.

What life is

for someone else.

I will take that peek.

I want to see.

I want to know.

What life can be

for me.
