Lonely Girl looking out the Window Listening to the Wind Blow By Jasen Sousa

Lonely Girl looking out the Window Listening to the Wind Blow


Lonely girl looking out a window listening to the wind blow.
Sees her ghostly reflection as she stares,
gazing for hours hoping, wishing
to find something, someone that cares.
She sees a transparent image
of her own troublesome tears.

Lonely girl looking out a window listening to the wind blow.
Standing with frail fingers on her hips,
wondering if she will find the love of her life
that will change her world with a kiss on the lips.
Searching desperately for a reason to remain,
a reason to exist.

Lonely girl looking out a window listening to the wind blow.
The window gets foggy from hopeless breaths blown from her nose,
standing there for hours wondering
why she was not chose.
Looking like a statue
in a perfectly painful sculpted pose.

Lonely girl looking out a window listening to the wind blow.
She puts her fingers up to the fog and draws a heart
which is illuminated by streetlights
pulsating in the dark.
She had so many plans for the future,
but never quite knew where to start.

Lonely girl looking out a window listening to the wind blow.
She stares with blurred vision,
nowhere to go,
her room is a prison.
Lonely girl looking out a window, wondering why she is still living?
She begs for the world to see her, but for now
she pulls down the shade, wanting to remain hidden.
