Slowly I FadeMature

Slowly I fade

Fading away

Into that bottomless pit

That dark abyss

Silently I cry

Just one tear

One tear for you

And you

And you

One tear for all

Left with nothing 

But the breath of a memory

To cling to

To hold

And so I let go

Where have you gone?

You promised to never go

Where I could not follow

Your whisper caresses me,

A feather touch,

"Except for Death,

My darling"

So I am left alone

With wisps of ice

Dancing on my lashes

Red petals fall

The only color

In this shadowed world

Oak wood and silk

Encasing my body

Give me all your burdens

Your troubles and pains

Bury them with Memory

Six feet under

The End
