Window Pain

You think I'm looking out the window
While I view my own reflection
Staring at this distorted image
Without your eyes detection

I'm looking, at this person 
Who I no longer know
I was stronger once
Where did that person go?

You took him from me
Left this Zombie behind
You have reshaped me
To this person I find

I turn from the window
I have seen enough
The view would've been better
My life reflected is too tough

    I often thing my reflection in the mirror isn't as clearer as it should be, then I take out the windex give it a good scrub then close the curtains.

    Mirrors are rather extrordinary and mystical things. Thanks for the visit Casarah.

    Hi Richard, another fine write from your pen. It's strange how there is always someone who widhes to change us into what there image is. There image doesn't always fit in with what we want. I can relate to this one. I had to become someone different to everyone. I changed myself in so many different ways. I just wanted to please. One can become a bitter man, then, as you say, you see it. You know it is be your own man or fall. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    Sometimes, it' s really hurting, when someone made us change. But, after all, we weaken and get stronger out of it... And from the window pain, you get a protective window pane. Can't it be? Cheer up, friend. That's life... Excellent write! :)Hanitra

    Well, here's life 's unpredictable circumvolutions; almost one year after my comment on your "Window Pain", it's me who's standing here now, with my window panes shaking hard....But, hush, "this old house" has seen much more. God will repair...:) My turn to turn to someone who says "Cheer up, friend"...And the miracle is, you said it! That's what a friend is for! Thanks and Hugs, Hanitra

    I like the metaphoric idea in this one..Thanks for stopping by my work..I hope that this is not life but just from an idea that you had from seeing this happen to others..Sara
