The Window Of Life - Poem by Katherine Kay Graven

The window of life is closed off you see
Because of the lies spoken to me
I pulled and I tugged with all my might
To open it so I would know
what to do with my life

I can still hear the words of love spoken to me
During the first night I gave myself freely
You spoke of a future so full of love
How could I have known you made it all up

You held me so close you entered my soul
I believed your every word you made my heart glow
I know I loved you the first time we kissed

Oh God

how could I have known it would turn out like this

The window is closed the blinds pulled down tight
What if they are wrong and I am right
That this is something you have to work through
When all is said and done I will be with you

When I see you your mind is not here nor there
I ask for answers but all you do is stare
What have I done to deserve this from you
I beg of you please tell me the truth

Everyone tells me to leave you alone
Maybe I could if I knew what I had done wrong
So I search my mind to find the truth
But all I can see is how much I love you


I will stand before the window and keep trying to see in
Hoping someday you will let our love begin again
So you go your way and I will try to go mine
Who knows there may be someone else for me this time

The window of life is foggy it seems
It hides your heart from the truth and deceitful things
So I will leave you with my head held high
And hell will freeze over before you see me cry

For now my love has turn to hate
But why did the answers have to come to late
You could have told me the truth when we first began
Then I wouldn’t have made a fool of myself in front of everyone

Moral of the poem

If you are someone standing in front of this same window
And you feel that you live in the I don’t know
Hold back your feelings never let them show
Until the window opens revealing what you need to know
