collapsing to my knees, distended with dejection
instead of sweet relief, I offered you rejection
an insightful revelation, I must make amends
an introduction first, an apology as friends!
with my courage restored, to your window I started
but in turn it was me, weeping brokenhearted
teardrops dripping down, falling to my feet
head in my hands, sobbing in the street
like lightning I had ran, coming to a halt
no girl in the window, this was all my fault!
eleven days more, and each night I return
more sullen in spirit, crippled by concern
I long for forgiveness, but you never show
come the next night, outside your window
underneath the stars, to prove I repent
again I’ll await you, and bring with a present
