Fade To Gray

Fade to Gray

written by: L.M.Giannone



Pillow dangling over the edge
of your side of the bed
indentation in the satin sheets
where you used to lie
My dreams have been
forced into exile
Held captive
transformed into nightmares
Tossing, turning, and shifting
provides no relief
I know if I fall asleep
when I wake I’ll find you gone
Disappeared into the night
like a faded dream
Outside the window
the moon hangs in obscurity
Cloaked by the gray of dawn
what I’d give for one more kiss
before you go into that good night
I imagine your voice
close right here beside me
your touch still etched on my skin
imprinted in my heart
I’ll recede, melting away like an icicle
in the thaw of spring
until we meet again
on the other side
