Windows Apart

She slips away silently, to escape mothers screams
And crawls so softly, into bed, into dreams

His dreams became so dark
Left them to his escape into the dark
To dream open eyes outside window 
Across his vision he saw as light lost its flicker 

Loss for air she lay, sobbing away sorrow
But she felt invaded, grasping in surprise's horror
So close these shattered mirrors lay
A soft curious cry,a leaf blow away
Together now their halos became so clear
The coping of bewildered souls to share

He slips away silently, to escape his skeleton's haunts
And crawls softly, into new arms, to cure a world of wants

    Awwee I like this....I had a thought to do that too..but I didnt know exactly how to do it, so I just switched it to a guy, rather than making it a girl again....most of my poems are actually about me, but This one, I think I just wanted a little bit of change, nice job on this I like it...Im glad my little bit helped create it....<33 Jese
