Faded

At the edge of her tomorrow,
I am one step away
from being another
memory.

I start fading
into all the dreams
she chooses not to remember.

I start fading
from the midnight of her eyes
as she turns back to her sun.

I start fading
into the blackness of her pain,
forgotten
as the dawn light spills
back into her life.

I start fading
from the life we had together
living only in the unconscious thoughts
she buries.

I start fading
knowing
she was never mine to keep.


This is my first real attempt at writing from a male point of view and it happened by accident; the universe played a sneaky trick on me so to speak. πŸ˜πŸ’œ I hope you enjoy this attempt.

  1. This is a really clever stanza: “I start fading / from the midnight of her eyes / as she turns back to her sun.” The contrast of darkness and light and then how the night fades to the sun and vice versa. Loving what you did with this. And that’s awesome you tried a new perspective.

      1. Actually, writing from your opposite gender viewpoint is easier than you think. I like to do it depending on the topic. It’s a little like playing chess when in the middle of the game they turn the board around and you have to play the opposite side of the board.. You should try it again??? Please?
