One-way lives

I'd love to live in one of those tall, wide, sprawling tower blocks. The ones that dominate a city's skyline and can be seen no matter where. As you approach the building it unveils itself as a mass of stars in the sky you can take in the aura but lack any single thing to focus in on. Rows and rows of windows, every one of them hiding a life.

I'd like to be one of those lives…on the inside looking out. Sitting in the window watching the people outside and taking that chance…the chance that you won't be seen. Banking on that probability that of all the windows yours will go unnoticed, allowing your voyeurism to remain a dirty little secret. Maybe even turn off the lights, use some binoculars and scan the lives in the building across from yours, dotted like stars in the sky. Resting on one dark window and wondering if there is a life behind that window. With binoculars. Looking at you.
