When we lose sight of each other.

Windows of the Soul

by LisaMay

Who will blink first
as we eye what’s ahead?
I’ll think the worst;
you’ll feel dread’s thirst.

You’ll look away ~
imagining bluer skies,
greener pastures,
sunshine in her eyes.

You wish to be free.
What can I say?
You look through me.
I’ve become invisible ~
a pane in your way.
We’re both miserable.

When you do look at me,
it’s plain to see 
our love’s been spent.
I mirror your clouded discontent.

We can’t see 
what used to be.

Sadness has overcome us all at one time or another. Either caused by a relative or close friend's death or from the girl or guy that broke our heart or just life in general. We all handle situations differently, some good, some bad. This contest gives us the ability to explore this. Your poem can also play into other emotions that are common to writing like this such as anger or depression.
