Standing At A Window Looking In


EMOTIONAL ISOLATION | On the inability to share realities with each other – the biggest contributor to human pain. On not even understanding that we are worthy and capable of true connection.


there’s a little girl standing at the window looking in

*

inside a fireplace is burning, the Christmas tree is lit
family and friends are gathered, laughing and playing
the little girl smiles as she watches their joy
standing at the window looking in

*

outside it’s dark, it’s a cold winter’s night
the little girl shivers, oblivious
her attention is inside, absorbing the joy through the layers of glass
soaking up feelings like an old dried out sponge

*

in her heart, she’s in there with them
in the room warmed up by love and fire

in her heart, there is no glass between them
no window to look through

and so she never thinks of asking
if she could come in to the warmth
through the front door
