Love’s Window


Eyes filled with tears
Like shattered window panes
Allow slivers of light to slip past
Shards of glass
To reveal a heart in pieces
Empathy is mind’s illusion
For the heart is broken
Not fallen apart
Time will mend
The emptiness within
Forgotten in true love’s embrace
Affection will not erase
The scars left
Calloused memories
A soul will search endlessly
For the timeless picture of love
Held within a broken frame
Hope will defy vulnerability
To grasp that which alludes to eternity
A mere glimpse
That slips past the pain
Of shattered lives and broken frames
Through love’s window of immortality…
