The Window

my eyes are open
no thoughts to disturb the silent space
the mind has become a void
where existence is only a breath
exhaling desolation and cold

I peek through curtains
to find the world alive
filled with noise and motion
the light outside, the dark inside
two worlds
separated by a pane of glass
it reveals how thin the distance is
between yesterday and today
it all appears the same
trapped in a darkness 
that has finally bloomed like weeds
from a mold that entrenched itself long ago
when I was a frivolous farmer
consuming everything I grew
without care or reservation
not thinking of the dark husks
I left scattered on the empty fields
of my needs

tomorrow haunts me
and it has yet to arrive
I close the curtain
and cry,  where no one hears me

    A well written sad, lonely write, yet many can face this in their lives and reflect back on the past, worry about tomorrow, etc. Very well expressed in these words Frederic.

    We often live in that place of the what if and regret, but as we grow older we learn that everything has a time, so does acceptance, forgiveness and peace. Love your poem Frederic xo
