Girl In The Window

Girl In The Window

A Poem by fallen_sueanne
"

Sometimes no one notices the pain.

"

 

Girl looking through a window

People walking by slowly

None stop to meet her eyes

Life goes on and time fades

 

Mother comes home weary

Supporting both by herself

Father seen in one place only

Gentlemen’s club down the road

 

Girl staring down at the ground

Wishing her feet would move

Take her to someplace special

Someplace she could call home

 

Boy knocks on the door one day

Holds the girl, makes her smile

She finds an escape in his eyes

He sees a free trip for pleasure

 

Her daughter missing for a week

Mother doesn’t notice a thing

Time goes on, the boy gets tired

Girl left in an alley all alone

 

Stumbling home, Mother ignores

Girl bleeds with tears in her eyes

Father appears and shakes his head

Says her daughter’s a waste of space

 

Girl just looks out of the window

Watches people passing by

No one stops to realize her pain

Life goes on and time fades

I could see why you could cry over this. It's a really sad thought(s). When you take time to ponder the things you see, like a homeless guy on the street, a middle-aged cashier it's almost sad to look back and think of the dreams the must have had and the lives the lived. Poetry isn't (I've got to admit) my favourite thing, but I do enjoy some kinds. I like how you leave some "imagination room" within the poem in which the reader can ponder the feelings of the characters.

Beautiful. Probably the best poem I've read. I cried, and felt everything from my childhood rush back. THAT says something right there. I love your work, it's my favorite. You deserve to get published, someday.
