Why & What For....

She sits by the window
watching the cars go by
thinking about the future
wondering what for
wondering why
she feels a teardrop
fall to the floor
like a pin drop
its heard across the world
it shatters the reality
she's painted upon her walls
built to protect her
from the depths of it all
here to catch her
when she falls
A voice from the shadows
flickers in the candlelight
she listens knowing
the world's gonna change
the turn of it's axis tonight
There -
there it was
a knocking upon her
proverbial door
Who beckons to be let in
For whom does the bell toll
She walks knowing
Change brews from within
As she opens the door
and in comes the wind
she feels a teardrop
fall to the floor
like a pin drop
its heard across the world
why and what for.

Very well done, Kristy.

Tears wash away pain and love brings hope to us. Opening the door to our hearts to someone is always a joyful thing to do. Knowing not what it will bring, heartache or pain in future, we always take the chance. We do not always understand ourselves either and why we do the things we do.**********

An air of mystique surrounds. "A knocking upon her proverbial door". The winds of change will usher anew, for her to view. A story well told with a bold approach. Jon Michael Willey

It's almost like a shot heard around the world. The pain or the joy that we carry is definitely contagious my friend. Be well and may Peace, Love and Blessings be with you Always, Paul.

Beautiful and a twinge of suspense, as the bell tolls its lonesome sound....

Be safe,
