Looking Out My Window


Looking out my window
The sun reflecting off the white
I touch the window softly
I shudder from the chill
That only winter can bring.

I sit here wrapped in blankets
Like a bear, I hibernate
Or more like I’m cocooned
Waiting to transform

I do venture out into
the doom and gloom of cold.
Unlike a bear I have to see,
breath and eat.
Interacting with others.
Else I stay alone and isolate.


Be careful what you wish for.
Spring quickly turns to summer
Yet again I am cocooned
in air conditioned slumber.

Maybe it’s not the weather that
Keeps me hidden so far away
from everyone else.

Maybe it’s not the car or the cold.
The heat or the sun.

Maybe moving to climates more fitting would lead me to finding different reasons for sitting….alone.

Yet…alone is where I sit blaming
winter, summer, hot or cold.

Looking out my window.


About goplayintraffic

My Blog, which began as a mommy blog and turned into a writing website, www.write2survive.com, is the product of my years of being home with my children and trying to find ways to keep myself sane. I have always had this feeling, coming from a single mother, that I have to contribute financially and that I have to be able to take care of myself and my children. having been married, being a NYC school teacher, having four children, living in Newtown, CT and trying to find a way to get through each day with a smile has always been something I've strived for. My stories, articles and poems will do a lot of things but mostly make you feel. I think that is what is so wonderful about having the ability to write. I have been given the gift of taking my emotions and transferring them to written word. Once that is done, I can share those words with others who may feel better, maybe just for a moment, but better nonetheless having read my words. I am glad you are here and hope you will stay:)
