Fading Fast This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

My mind floats freely

like a long, dusty road

leading back to nowhere.

My head tilted back

I study the sky

looking for the answer

I found once in your eyes.

With an icy warmth

I traced the small smile

that fleetingly touched your lips

and a small part of the love I have for you

burns my fingertips.

The moon's quiet glow

shines light past my eyes

when I can realize the way the night ends.

Darkness from this moment is gone forever

And you?

You have just silently whispered good-bye.
