Fading

Fading
Withering
Melting into the background

Becoming
A phantom
A ghost

Haunting
The chambers of my soul

Starring
In other people’s dreams

Floating
Shimmering
Blinking

The parts that make my soul
In atrophy

Star bursts of me
In a parallel universe

The chrysalis
Of a new state of being

Born through metamorphosis
Of here and now,
Of once upon a time,
Of a blue cumulus cloud,
and a beam of sunlight

Black holes
And darkness
Make the light shine brighter
Shadows
And grey days
Hide the dying soul

Fading
Withering
Slipping
Sliding
From this reality
To another.
