Shadowy figures peering in

Distant shapes of what has

Been

Lost inclinations defined

In sin

These are the images as

Seen from within

Looking out the windows

Of my heart

Cottages alone in fields

Natures garden that

Lasting shield keeping at

Bay the harshness of

Time

Protecting that one thing

Truly mine

Seen from the windows

Of my mind

Scar covered features

Of broken dreams

Shadows of things

And places i’ve been

Seen is reflection as

Merely dream

Seen through the veil

Of my eyes

Fallen angels at my feet

Questions asked of being

Unique

Hushed conversations to

Be discreet

These are the things I

Do find

Viewed in reflection and

Time
