Tattered Window (poem)

She searches for a reason for the day

There through a tattered window of her room

A lifetime of rejection sewed her gloom

Her fashion formed through heartaches and dismay

-

And darkness gladly takes her to its tomb

With promises of lies to ease her way

To please and tease then seize a soul astray

Soft sighs disguise the perils which there loom

-

And for a while deception felt so grand

The mask of sadness consumed youthful years

There through a tattered window came a cry

-

She searches through her room to understand

And what she found would fill her eyes with tears

A strange new star was dawning in the sky
