Faded: A Poem


I see in black and white,

The faces of people muted,

A rush of activity as the rain pours in,

Shrouding emotion with shadows,

There was a time when I saw color,

But reality blurred the different shades,

Mixing them all together,

Until only bitterness remained.

Eight lines, and packed with alot of intelligence.

"..There was a time when I saw color,.."

For me:

These lines are full of the recurrent idea of thought; over time it lacks the strength it once had.

Thought truly faints...at times bursting like the sunset in the morning, and within a twinkling of an eye it becomes black with the massive flecks of white stardust.

Your poetry is lovely to think upon; I am sure I will read this one again, as these first thoughts will fade.

BTW: Your picture choices and accompanying videos are praiseworthy; they offer such a compliment to your verse.

I will return, and thank you for writing,

Erin, your poetry is a delight. No nonsense but you get your message across clearly and without wasted words, bells and whistles. Your videos are always so relevant to the content. Think I'll follow you.
