When Love Fades - Poem by Robert Rumery

You can see them playing,
you can hear their voices inside of your head,
you feel there breathe on your so skin,
so cold and so clammy,
you close your eyes and you can see what happened,
that they had sealed there fat in a dimly lit-room,

You want to pretend like it never happened,
you huddle in the corner and curl into a small little ball,
you closed your eyes tightly with your legs into your chest,
rocking back and forth hard,
wishing that it wasn't true,
wanting to go back to a happier place,
inside of your mind,
inside of your soul,

You just wanted to walk away from,
the love that you had in your life,
the passion that was inside of you,
all you can remember is you screaming at them,
you telling them that you hated them,
but that’s not how you truly felt,
tears pour out of your eyes and they stream down your cheeks,
the sorrow inside of your heart,
the pain and the hatred for what happened and what was supposed to be,
you can't turn back the clock to stop this deed,

Chorus: This is what happens when love fades,
This is what happens when love fades.
This is what happens when love fades,

Can't you remember all the happier times,
that you all had it wasn't always like this,
the love all three off you shared it was uncanny,
so loving and so passionate,

I've never seen anything like it,
the love that you had all shared,
for that brief period of time,
but know it was all gone and there was only you,
can't you see what you’re putting her through?

This is what happens when love fades
this is what happens when love fades
this is what happens when love fades

know it is time,
to go down to the church,
open your eyes and your hearts,
its time to say your final good-byes,
its time to let them leave,

tears pour out of your eyes,
I comfort you with a brief kiss on the lips,
I'm here for you,
for know and for the end of time,
I love you,
