LEFT WAITING BY THE WINDOW | #Love #Poetry | Her Story | 

  Left Waiting By The Window

Will there ever be a day 

When the rain 

Doesn’t make me think of you 

How you reigned in my mind

Ruling royally

Making it rain

Every time internally

Essence responding 

Puddles everywhere 

Proof that I wasn’t dreaming 

You were once really here

You left me waiting by the window

At first I was outside

Occasionally glancing up at the sky 

Hiding tear stained cheeks 

From each passerby

Couldn’t let the world know 

What they already knew

They figured as much 

When from the curb 

To the steps 

I moved

To the porch 

To wait for you

Several moments passed 

My make up is smeared 

And the humidity has done 

Something odd to my hair 

I checked my phone and 

Even peeked in the mailbox

Maybe just maybe

You’d left a note in there 

It’s time to go inside

I pretend it is my choice

I check my phone again

Hoping to hear your voice

Even if it was a new excuse 

You thought 

enough of me to call

Even if it was a new lie

I’d take it

A new trick

For me to fall 

You left me waiting by the window

and through it I can see

My neighbor’s gown

Bouquet in hand

Now a Bride

She waves at me

I faintly smile 

She can’t see my tears

Left waiting by the window 

In love I still believe 

I wish her the best 

She’d mistake my tears for joy anyway 

Can’t rain on her parade

Though I hope

She’s not left waiting
