On the outside looking in looking out
I can’t help but ponder, hmm
What lays within?
Two panes of glass with space in the middle
Is there an answer to this riddle?
What does it hold, what can it foretell?
Is there a future held in its shell?
It holds the present between that glass
It holds all the keys, including the past
The glass seems almost liquid
It seems to be calling me in
An offer to explore the secrets held within
Raising my hand to the fluid glass
Allured to the calling
On the inside looking out looking in
Remarkable wonders before me
Another dimension in another time
A creation of another design
Not at all what I expected
I had it all wrong
It is a sight to behold
Yet something doesn’t belong
That something is me
But I was invited
Practically pulled in
What is happening
I don’t understand
I think I’d better go I feel closed in
I’ll just slip back through…
Hmm, Where did it go?
Searching, Oh my God
Where? Where is it?
The light is fading fast
Dark so dark inside the glass
I was fooled but why
A shadow, who is it?
“I am Deceit, I pulled you in”
“You were trusting “
“This is your sin”
“You are my captive”
“A life between the panes”
“”Frozen in time as time goes by”
“The third dimension”
“Not only dark and light”
“There is something in between”
“That glow we feel that guides”
“That hand which is unseen”
Fear filled my heart as I began to realise
I had entered a place where stolen souls hide
Locked inside never to leave
Stored up for what, remains to be seen
