Stained Glass Window

Work in progress — Sep 8, 2017


I’m just a stained glass window

some colors bright, some dim

just broken bits and pieces

held together with wire and tin.


I am a stained glass window

random pieces of glass that

create a tapestry of splendor

when the sun shines through.


Don’t get too close, you’ll see the scars

I’m best held out of reach

where no one can feel

the broken bitterness

I refuse to reveal.


Don’t look so close, watch from afar

somewhat discouraged

I’d rather be alone

than risk the pain

deep in my bones.


Truth is, I’m a lonely soul

cast in an iron frame

displayed out of reach

and useless without the sun

useless without the sun.
