Classic Poem: Fade Away

This one originally appeared in “By The Ounce And Other Tales.”

 

Fade Away

 

The mind plays

Memories of years past

The first kiss

The first love

Your voice fades away

 

The world is in slow motion

Shooting stars in the distance

I long for you

I yearn for you

Your smile fades away

 

Eternity is too long

Yesterday wasn’t long enough

To live without you

To live without anyone

Your scent fades away

 

Between voluntary solitude

And involuntary isolation

A new page

A new chapter

You fade away
