Faded Gray

I saw you standing on the sidewalk in your faded gray
I turned and walked the other way
It's too soon to walk past and not touch you
I stand on the outside watching us fade away
Hoping there was something you were going to say

Why did you put me on that shelf?
Why did you turn off the light, left me in the dark?
I was once your favorite and now just forgotten
Now my heart only rages for what we once were
You left me empty and alone, all I do is roam

You will never silence my voice in your head
It will follow you down to your last breath
You will never forget my touch across your skin
You will never loose the desire of me
Dreams, are all that you are hanging onto, dreams


The wind howls your name and I stand in the cold
Longing for your heart to keep me warm
Ashes float down to cover me from the fire storm
Of your love, I gave all of me to you and you left
I lost my way home leaving me in this dark madness

I saw you standing on the sidewalk in your faded gray
You were haunting, the past, no future to hold
Time strengthen my resolve, walked past and no longer
Needing to touch you, now you are a ghost of my memory
Of a burning craving for your love, a fading ember.

You will never silence my voice in your head
It will follow you down to your last breath
You will never forget my touch across your skin
You will never loose the desire of me
Dreams, are all that you are hanging onto, dreams

  1. There is so much emotion in.."I saw you standing on the sidewalk in your faded gray". Another great line, "The wind howls your name and I stand in the cold". This piece is chock-full of emotion. I believe all readers will be able to identify to some extent.
