The first of January's nights

I was looking at that window thinking

there's someone I love in there - 

and she was


I looked at your window later

waving a thousand times - 

and yet couldn't stop


I'm looking at that dim lit window

as cold rain struggles to freeze white -


And in there are my mad life's beauties,

as I lean against the first of January's nights

I like the changing tense in the first lines of each verse, clever that.

I really like it as a whole...with its little clues, and ambiguity. In fact, I LOVE the ambiguity, and 'mad life's beauties' - mmm :)
