DAVID GROSS

THE WINDOW

I SAT GAZING OU THE WINDOW

WANTING TO BE OUTSIDE BUT STUCK IN

I SAT STAREING OUT THE WINDOW

DAY AFTER DAY WAITING FOR THE PEBLES

TO HIT THE WINDOW AND SAY "COME OUT AND PLAY"

DAY BY DAY THE PAINS OF THE WINDOW GREW

DARKER AND COLD AS

I SAT BY THE WINDOW, THE LIGHT TURNED TO NIGHT

MY EYES RAINING WITH TEARS, MY RIST WITHG PAIN

WHAT WOULD REMAIN, THE WINDOW IS BROKEN

I FELL BY THE WINDOW DYING

WONDERING WHY YOU DIN'T JUST KNOCK ON MY DOOR

WONDERINGWHY THE SHADES ARE DOWN NOW

AND I AM GONE

AND YOU ARE TOO LATE
