A Natural Orchestra for a Story Book Beauty

This is an older piece.

She sits in her room
listening to 45s
as she stares out her window
Watching raindrops touch down
against the canvas of this desolate town
And the lonliness
begins to eat away at her hoplessness
and the hoplessness
only leads to more lonliness
and the boredom...
the boredom spins 'round
with the records that she bobs her head to
This single room apartment
smoky and dimly lit
only by a single light bulb
that hangs in solitude
amongst the cloudy, grey, damp air
Even the dust begins to die
in agony with the sound of the rain
against the window
