Inspired…so I write…

Fading Goodbye

 

Here in skin

here in flesh

walking past window reflections

the deli up the street knows me

the quarter dollar paper in tow

what was it we feared…

it’s just around the corner from me

now

 

Here inside

here in cement strides

waking up the neighbor’s dog

the angel left her post for now

the moment I needed her most

is the moment I give back to you

again

 

When we’re really alive

what really matters is that we’re really alive.

 

Scenery blurs by

until we have to stand still just

long enough to see

 

it drips down, the time

we can’t hold as fingers

aren’t forever

just like me

 

So I fade

each day turning to ash

I fade more

because here I live

inside

for

you
