blind windows

oblivion

she thought it would be dark
but it was white, blank,
like an empty page
and it was cold, no …..
it was she who was cold
cold and blue as ice
dissolving into nothingness
she thought she’d be falling
or drifting or floating
but she was standing
on a fragment of a house
that only ever existed in her dreams
she thought she would disappear
into the emptiness forever
not even her angel could find her there
then the sound of wings
cutting through the silence

blind windows

she stands on the edge of darkness,
pale as the pale moonlight,
there are towers of windows all around her
below on the streets life goes on.

night after night she stands here
on this small ledge outside her room,
a room cold and empty without him
where his voice softly whispers her name,
where the bed in which they slept together
she can’t bear to sleep in alone.

she stares at the stars, hoping
for a sign that he’ll be returning;
many days and nights she’s been waiting
alone in this empty room

she stands on the edge of darkness
no-one sees her in the pale moonlight,
towers of blind windows all around her,
below life goes on just the same
