Faded Kisses

Faded Kisses

A Poem by Kelso A. Nicholson

Faded are your kisses, they never last long
as I cannot find a place to store my heart.
I give and inevitably revoke
walking such a thin line
swaying back and forth with the changing breeze. 
I love and inevitably regret
all the while holding on to secrets
or truths that I am too afraid to tell you.
I feel and inevitably forsake
when I tire of dangling my heart in front of you.
Waiting for you to reach out for it.
Faded are your kisses, because you never stay long.
