Faded Memories (Window Reflection)

I remember looking outside through my window,
It was when I looked I was distracted by my reflection,
Reflection of self, memories of my life in recollection,
I remember the kind words of other’s and their arms around me in affection,
I remember the feeling of love, the steel binded connection,
Outside I see a world full of people, a world active,
I remember the heeling process my heart pulled in traction,
Through the reflection of the mirror distorted love in abstraction,
I’m all alone, I can only feel relationships falling into an improper fraction,
I look at myself and wonder why?
My thoughts run in circles, abandonment without the good bye,
Looking into the mirror through the reflection all I can do is cry,
Afraid to look through the window at morals that remains unjustified,
So I look into the reflection, the barrier to the outside,
Alone in darkness, I afraid to see past the night,
Even with the benefit of doubt, I knew I was right,
Unconditional love encrypted through reflection of a white lie,
In the stain glass window, used as a mirror I cry, I cry,
When I hold my composure I try to just sigh,
But through the reflection I see teardrops fall from the sky,
Through grey eyes the anger burns inside,
Through blue eyes the reflection from above,
Two eyes of different colors the representation of love,
Faded memories into the window glass, I must let go of,
But I fall to the floor while still looking through the reflection,
Abandonment, stranded through inside the window, indirect rejection,
So I look at myself with no one destined for perfection,
But to be alone without anyone is pain inside without emotional protection,
When I look at the reflection of faded memories I feel ignored,
I feel unprotected as my body is washed up in life on the shore,
I can only look from the inside without looking out, at memories I’ve experienced before,
Without a shield I run into bullets and forever wounded from life’s war,
I can only through the reflection and remember memories that are forever gone,
I can only rest in somber sleep to the sound of my heart beating in the most beautiful song,
Afraid to see the light from the outside, my eyes close to dawn,
Faded memories, in my heart they still exist, but in reality their forever gone,
I once remember the day when I didn’t feel alone,
I still remember that day, when light from the sun shown,
Through my window and I look past the mirror of myself,
I can only remember in memory the happiness I felt,
The willingness to live through love for another, abstinence from dangling from the belt,
It feels like a whip to bare skin leaving a permanent welt,
The fire on the binded connection of steel burning in smelt,
I can only look outside and my eyes remain blind,
My feelings are forever written on a scroll inside my mind,
And tear drops fall forever and emotions unwind,
But the pain doesn’t come from the pain that’s active outside,
Through the window afraid to look out from memories to remind,
Remind myself I’m alone in agony confined,
Through the reflection of the window, the pain lingers inside.
