Room with a View

Room with a View by Amy Swanson 12/2008 ~ Written for someone dear to me ~ She sits alone this quiet room feels so empty echoes her quiet scream. She barely catches just a glimpse of one lonely tree branch it seems to mock her; Saying, see, I am alone but I am free and you are not. Why did life turn out this way? Why is it so difficult just to live? Hot tears fall down; she silently prays that God will somehow rescue her from this place. The hours go by; days and minutes all turn into months and years - At times it seems unbearable where did the time go? Where did life go? joys exchanged for fears She sighs so deep within her spirit just another day - they are all the same. But she is resigned to this hollow existence weary silence in this room with a view.

Unfortunately, Amy, I believe most people go through a period like this somewhere in life. For most it passes. May your friend be among the most. Good write. You have a Merry Christmas, y'hear. Love, daver

A beautiful, yet sad piece of poetry. Very moving! I love the way it's presented as well, like it's fragmented. Maybe to match the state of the narrator. Also thank you for your very kind comments. Merry Christmas! Nathaniel

This speaks so sadly, of lonely people I also know. Life can be cruel, while they sit and wait. So heartfelt...you said it so well. ~ Carrie
