it's faded... it's all just faded and turning to dust by ShadowDancer

it's faded... it's all just faded and turning to dust by 

the way he used to smile at me
has gone away
and that special twinkle in his eyes
has dulled

and our happiness…
it’s faded

the life we used to share
has faded and is turning to dust

I am a dreamer, artist, and mother. I dance in the rain, spend too much time reading books, and live for my family. I am a gypsy, poet, musician, and artist. But most of all, I am a butterfly fairy. Come dream with me.

    Patti Jo, it is nice to see you back, truly missed your work and your thoughts but thought you’d like to place this over at Art and ink so free, to offer yet another venue for your work… and maximum exposure. What do you say?

  • Russell, so good to see you again.. trying to make my way back here and back to the deep places inside myself.. love your new group and very happy to share with it. Thank you so much.

    a hauntingly beautiful image,
    gosh your words remind me of one of the most painful times in my life….

    I hope you are ok xoxoxoxoxoxo

  • it always hurts when things fade and slip through our fingers.. but i have to remind myself that such is life… everything has an expiration date. someday that thought will bring me comfort.
    love you.
