Sun breaching the adjacent apartment building.
This window open to the vibrant street below.
Oh, were I strong enough to step out,
To join the masses in the frivolity of the day,
But lo! I am not so bold.
Day after day, Mitty-like I sit,
Alone with my thoughts
Dreaming of what could be,
What could have been,
The chivalrous me,
Rescuing damsels in distress,
Storming the castle,
Slaying the dragon,
Saving the day,
Or simply stepping foot on the sidewalk below,
Is that too much to ask?
I don’t know,
But one can dream can’t they?
