fading fast

August 27, 2008

like a dandelion
i was strong and beautiful
but through wind and pounding rain
beauty fades my friend
strength is drained away
and yellow fades to white
and petals turn to feathers
as i try to keep myself together
but it's a useless game
trying to hold on
as the wind rips me apart
leaving only this empty heart
