This is a short poem about the downfall of a boy.
Once there was a boy, but isn't there always?
Lingering in the mind like a simple cloud.
Curiosity, overtaking the brain.
Always consumed in these thoughts.
What happens when their presence lingers away?
The thoughts fade to gray.
All the questions unanswered.
Millions of possibilities no more.
The boy is gone.
But the girl is stranded in her mind.
Fading to gray as well.
