Fade Away

Hair dye,
Tennis shoes,
The sharpness of a blade;
Are all the things that fade away.
And when I’m left
To this charade
I’m afraid
That I will too someday.
Fade away someday.

Daylight,
Dreams,
Bubbly chardonnay;
Are all the things that fade away.
And when it seems life will purvey,
We’re left there to rot
In our own dismay.
Will I too fade away someday?
That’s all I ever hear,
That’s all I ever say.

Shadows,
Scars,
And financial aid;
All the corruption that pervades.
Caught up in the games I’ve played,
Tried to live out the lies I’ve made.
But the truth is that we all decay,
Obeying and awaiting ’til the day we’re grey.
Waiting to say
Goodbye.

I’d love to stop the tirade;
The lying, the cheating,
The masquerade.
Talk it out on the promenade,
Find some common ground
In our youth crusade.

But like a blue sky that turns to grey
Or an old photo display,
We too will fade away.
Fade away someday.
Fade away
Fade

About humblefoot

Kyle Fisher (who often uses the alias Logan Rowley online and in his writing) has been enjoying writing since he was just 8 years old. His first formal publication was at the age of 13. He is now a spiritualist and openly queer author, perpetually searching for inspiration to create and learn more about the world around him. He is always drawn to the simplicity and uniqueness that life has to offer. He doesn’t identify with labels or socially constructed ideas about how the world should be. He believes that the world is your oyster, and that we all project our own destinies with the thoughts we choose to harbour about the universe. He is an idealistic, spiritualistic hippie who is just trying to find his place in this world, crafting each word to leave his mark, and promote love and equality among all people.
