MOTHS ON THE WINDOW PANE

MOTHS ON THE WINDOW PANE

Like abandoned waifs
Their faces  at the window pane:
Big eyes and flapless wings
All pale and colorless 
Out in the dark night,
Silent witnesses
Staring into my life
Listening impassively
As you quietly explained -
You had met 
A new face and wanted
To be
Free
To be
With him and
You were leaving me -
My heart was crushed
And throat was choked
As I stared out
Into  the silent blackness,
All pale and colorless
With flapless wings
Abandoned.
