Broken Window

Broken Window Reflections of life don’t exist through a broken window Shattered images are only left for one to piece together Though sometimes too much pain and sorrow Will create those images to stay that way forever Altered hearts once filled with happiness for love Now drowned from the tears of a soul that deceived Thus showing a broken window one looks out of Desperately searching for the sun but its darkness remains to be seen A broken window can exists in places of a soul Not guarded or grounded to protect it from pain Thus always staring into a heartache that never grows old Forever young it remains Sharp are the pieces of glass that exists before one’s eyes Penetrating a heart that is already injured so Allowing it to only bleed in scars left on the outside Through one’s broken window
Nothing personal, I just like to write about different topics.

    I liked the optimism in the first couple lines. Saying that life throws you curve balls not to bring you down, but to test your faith and strength. To quote a country song I like "The good lord gave us mountains so we could learn how to climb" - Lonestar. I too try to expand my poetry by writing in a wide range of topics. It keeps those creative juices flowing!

    Gail, sharp are the pieces for sure, a profound and deep poem, I relate to it very much, I try to keep the window closed, locked, padlocked but it opens anyways, well done, constance

    Your fine poem, "Broken Glass" is wonderfully introspective and poignant, Gail, and your closing verse is brilliant and profound. Carl.

    Gail, I love the disclaimer at the end. Yes, sometimes we try to read too much into the poet's work when at times it is simply an attempt at capturing a certain mood or sentiment. Thanks for sharing this poem about the broken windows of our souls. Very deep. Hugs!

    Love the example you give here of the broken window in our souls, we are such delicate beings on the inside, we can shatter so easily, thanks for sharing this sensitive poem, sending my love and have a good night my dear one xxx

    Yes indeed, broken windows do not reflect images of life. I like that concept. And it is the shattered glass that creates the scars. Very profound write. Nothing personal taken - diversity is a good way to grow as a writer - no need to apologize for whatever streams from your poetic conscience. Nice write Gail.
