Word Picture #12

Broken Window

What does it mean

When I look in your face

And your soul is blank

When I look in your face

And your demons stand as in rank

What does it mean

When I reach out for a hug

You look down at your shoes

And all you do is shrug

I’ll tell you what it means to me:

Stop looking through that old broken window; it’s busted from years of rocks pelting it. First stone you threw, it cracked from top to bottom. It was not a clean break- jagged,taking up the whole window. Then came bigger rocks, chipping away at the surface,until one day a huge boulder came crashing through…such a terrific noise it made! What a great explosion, it took out all the glass. Now what’s left is an empty window pane;  the house is debris filled from the winds that blow in from all the four corners. Dust,rain,leaves all blowing in. And this is the window you want me to keep looking through? No thanks, I’ve better things to do.

Eres tú

ERES  tú

Eres mi espejo

cuando te miro

cuando hablamos

puedo ver un despejo

en ti veo mi reflejo

 

Eres un alma

tal como yo

eres quien me calma

puedo irme a donde sea

eres quien me calma

 

Un baso de agua,

una linda mañana

eres un alma

el unico que me calma

 

Susurro tú nombre

sueño con tenerte

no se como ni cuando

pero un dia llegaste tú

y saciaste mi  hambre.
