What do I see?

A hollow heart
masked an empty face
sad

I saw you standing there
A lost shadow
betrayed
by carnal desires

How could i tell
you were searching?
Seeking me?

A glimmer of hope
still resides within
a scattered mind
turmoil has no place here

I saw you standing there
afraid yet bold
timid yet humble
the ever consuming shadoww
dominating
clouding judgment
doubt and disbelief

destroyed with a smile

Thumping heartbeats
awaken the mind
a newly recharged spirit
fuels the soul
Is that happines that i see?

I saw courage
ready for a journey
ready for love
ready to embrace life

when i looked in your mirror
I saw Beauty
no longer afraid
no longer hiding
in a cold desolate place

Finally, freedom at last.
