yeah, i had a title for this poem.. but I deleted the last verse, so the title is no longer fitting.. ^_^ Any criticisms are also very welcome. ^_^
A shy little girl waits by the window,
Hoping to be seen and yet trying to hide.
Uncertainly she lingers,
Wanting to enter, held back by her fear,
She thinks that she knows that she can’t.
So she stays by the window,
As she searches to find in herself,
A courage she wishes she had.
I hold my breath; her hand is raised,
Hesitating, panic stricken.
She will, she won’t, she will, she won’t ...
She glances behind her, wanting to run.
I implore her to stay, beg without words.
Urging her to open,
She does not see me,
And her search is unfruitful,
She drops her hand and flees,
Glances up, then averts her eyes,
From my beseeching gaze.
Slips unseen into the crowd,
Gone, lost, her courage; failed.
