If you could only see me from the inside out...running in a field of flowers amid the morning dew...Supping white wine inside my thoughts...if only

The Broken Window
"May I come in, he said as he peered through the broken window at her. The wood that divided the panes resembled a cross that seemed to illuminate the sadness etched across her face. Could the sun be drawing its own image of her, he wondered?
Pensively, she stared at him for a few seconds before answering.
“Dreams that have been deferred by life and its valleys, have left me broken, she said as she gazed at the wooden floor. The cold winters hovered in her bosom like suspicions that could not thaw in a world that held no promise.
He walked closer to the broken window and spoke softly to her. “Please, my beautiful one, don’t let my love for you turn to dust inside your wintered soul.”
She lifted her eyes to meet his stare as tears traced her face with their own stories.
“My Sir, she spoke in a soft voice that reflected her love for him; “the mirror no longer stares back at me with hope.”
He heard the sunset-ring in her voice as he felt the tears brimming up in his own eyes.
“My dearest Missy Green Eyes, don’t you realize that a woman like you makes me hunger deep within my tomorrows?”
The cross shadowed her face as the sun continued its drawing.
“Look at me”, he said to her with the eyes of a mighty hunter. “Hell will not stop me now nor the demons therein.” “I shall come for you in the summer of our time.”
He turned and walked toward the setting sun like a cowboy of yesteryear…She walked closer to the broken window placing her hand on the sun-drawn cross. She knew he would return to take her away. She knew she would go. She loved him…..The hunter had found her waiting….. waiting in her new white dress
