What Lurks Within

What Lurks Within

Reflections that rest upon a window 
Are memories of past imprints seeping out of the walls
Lurking within the deepest of shadows
Spirits that entered to a place where death calls

People walk by windows all day long 
Never once realizing what lurks within
Perhaps they think they hear a humming of a song
Not quite knowing where it really belongs

They look around wondering where it could be
Not bothering to look deeply at a window’s pane
Instead they shrug their shoulders and walk by slowly
Never seeing the soul that chooses to remain

Life once lived still lurks from within this threshold 
Piercing out into a world they once known
Through mirrored images that rests upon windows
Of dimensions we carelessly don’t see that exist beyond the unknown

    I like the way you think. There is more to people than meets the eye if we only take the time to stop and listen. I feel as though I'm on the verge of a great discovery when I read this poem... something that was in front of me all along. Brilliant work Gail!

    This is a wonderful write about the world unknown, that which we can not see, but know it must be there! We can feel their presence whether or not we can see them! This poem talks about this world very wonderfully my friend! I really enjoyed reading this outstanding piece this afternoon, What a special poem, Great Work!!
