Les Yeux

a Window

an opening to my soul

you saw

further than any human

what did you see?

Darkness!

Pain!!

My Jail!!!

Look

see

 there is no way

to extract freedom

for there are

bars

you

SEE

Look – See and join us at One Shoot Sunday for a picture prompt

Trapped in the Mirror #oneshotwednesday

Hidden from view
My heart from you
Not round the next corner
No where to be found

Pick up the pieces
If that’s what pleases
You will never find me
In this shattered mosaic

I was lost long ago
How I don’t know
Faded in the mirror
No one looked then

You caught a piece of my eye
As you were sadly walking by
How you saw it
Remains a mystery

“Come out from there
You look sad, ensnared
Let me look at you
Make you smile”

He talked and made me look
read to me a book
Vowed to never leave
We were all we had

Then one day
It’s hard to say
What happened
to  the walls of my jail

I was set free
He fell to his knee
Entreating me
To live my life with him

I will gladly roam
With him my home
I am captive no more
the dungeon in the mirror

Please join us as we enjoy another week of fabulous poetry at One Stop Poetry. All are welcome to share their words of inspiration. Claudia Schoenfeld will be our host.

Day 30

I’m on day thirty

we met on day ten

if I had it to do over

wouldn’t do this one again

***

I was out on my luck

then again so was she

it seemed clear logic

get together and see

***

She’s moody when she’s drunk

I’m crazy when I’m straight

fights are quite normal

not really based on hate

***

maybe the hate

is based on things not done

a hell laden past

at home I’d never won

***

drugs made me not care

drink drove me wild

it served my family right

they’d never loved this child

***

she’d run so early

can’t remember time or place

when she started selling

her body or her face

***

Now it’s clean or  jail

so I guess we’ll do our best

at facing life sober

forgetting our dreadful past

Looking ahead, without looking back (too often)

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. - Edgar Allan Poe
