For Sarainlalaland challenge “The Light”

I Challenge You!

I wondered why her light was always on

I could see no movement behind the pink curtains

Could the fan just blown them aside

So I’d catch a glimpse of what’s inside

Day and night

Always that light

I saw the window

Closed

I hoped one day I’d see a 2 year old

Facing out smiling

On the glass her hands pressed and nose

Yesterday I went to knock on the door

Taped to it was a note

“Please don’t knock. Yes, we are home.”

I asked the neighbors

No one knows.

Tonight though

I saw a shadow

A silhouette

As the blinds flew opened

And she looked at the moon

Opened for the first time in years

Like it was just barely noon

And couldn’t happen to soon

Her eyes seemed to fly to that moon

Like a moth

And just like that

She turned her light

Off
