Slow Fade

Slow Fade

A Poem by KWP

darling, one request


walk the line of a slow fade

take the direction to the forest 

furthest away from me


this push pull has worn me to disfunction 

I pull, you push


to have you by my side 


for you to have another


walk the line of a slow fade 

take the direction 

furthest away from me

take the route - I shall watch you go 


exhausted is my outpouring of love 

replenished sparingly by your frugal heart


darling fade


dissipate from my reality 

allow the nothingness creep into your

lips, body, flesh and soul

fall down 

decompose, rot into this earth 


allow me to watch you become nothing

it is the only way to accept

you were never ever here with me to begin

I did like the amazing dance of words. Honest thoughts led to an honest ending. All things fade to less with time. Thank you, my friend, for sharing the amazing poetry.

This speaks so eloquently! And we seem to always be walking the line that fades gradually. Thanks for sharing

the last three lines could stand alone as a poem....so effective how you end things...
the relationship and the poem, as well.
I have allowed feelings to decompose, those of exes.
