Fade

Fade

A Poem by lynnsl



Inside your empty goals

And behind all the lies

You sent us to a place

Where love simply dies

-

I can see the selfishness

In things you wanted to do

The future you had planned,

Only included you

-

A drink and a cigarette

Do those help you forget?

I know I’ll be okay

And that I can't regret

-

I’ve found a brand new freedom

I focus on myself

Of dreams and goals and happiness

Instead of someone else

-

& so as time moves forward,

In turn so do I

I know that what we had is gone

But I just can't seem to cry

-

Before I fall asleep at night

I reflect on the years

I see now things were never perfect

It isn't worth my tears

-

So close your eyes

To dream of dollar signs

And all the happiness

That you wish to find

-

I hope someday you realize

The steps you need to take

To find genuine happiness

Instead of something fake

-

Maybe you'll learn to open your eyes

But I will be long gone

I tried, I cared, I gave my all

It’s time that I move on
