#Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge ~ #Poetry

The image is from Victor Moriyama at the New York Times.

For the visually challenged writer, the photo shows people seen in individual units through the large windows of a multi-unit apartment building.

Empty rooms

Darkness that makes me wonder what lies hidden
Windows lit, solitary beings stand within
What do they wait for?
Do they wait for darkness to take their pain?
Could be they wait for a lover to be let in
The darkness plays out many lives
Within the same space
Each story reflecting hope
played to a different tune
Which window do you hide behind?
