As My Image Fades

Rating: 5.0

As my image fades
You love my voice
you hate my words
you want me to help
rid you of me

As my image fades
i am the ghost
and you the haunted
how can i free you
from your own past

As my image fades
i can't pry your fingers
from my memory
or force your soul
to untie me

As my image fades
i can't erase my face
from your eyes
or ask your nose
to give up my scent

As my image fades
i can only turn away
add no more fuel
to your fire.
i can only back out
and hope that

as my image fades
so does the pain.

A witty portrayal of the whimsical and temperamental nature of love, well articulated and nicely brought forth from the heart. Thanks for sharing Shannon.
