Poefusion prompt

'the window had other views'
i'm afraid i didn't realize.
funny how you forget they
show things back to you.
like how insufficient
i am, or how dark it is;
inside. it's amazing to
discover, there's a whole
world out there, waiting
for you to accept it. if
only we could live our
true lives from the inside
looking out. then we'd
never have to worry
about all the missed
opportunities, looking
from our window view.

i find myself stuck on the inside.. unable to go out and live for the most part.. i kind of wish i could look in from the outside sometimes.....

Isn't it funny how much the window truly sees of us? Do we really take notice of the small neglects it goes through from time to time? You've created a nice poem with this prompt. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice night.

The window is such a fascinating "go between". In so many ways it tempts us out, but also keeps us in. Such an interesting object. Love them!

this is a very thought provoking one, if we could live our true lives like that....
