--Peering in blank windows--

Blank windows
no shadow of soul
even animals
have something
no matter how small.
But here looking at you
something's wrong
no one's home
doesn’t matter
if it's small
all have one.
Where's yours?

This is wonderful. What a great topic, nicely expressed.

I have been reading your work for over a year now, and I like this one best.

Blank Windows
Not bad. Could have been more subtle though--The line "no shadow of soul" is a bit blunt in my opinion, thought I loved the title and its metaphore.

Love. Peace. Metallica.
