From Poetic Asides:  “For today’s prompt, write a fade away poem. I’ll let you decide how to interpret what a fade away poem might cover.”

at the beginning
the story of us
(you and me)
starting as a blank page
both of us firmly there
giddy excitement promise
i remember the smell of your hair/neck
as we parted that night
a memory tattooed
in henna.

in the middle
the story of us
(me and you)
filling each page with dreams
magic potions and make believe
promise aplenty
memories springing forth
like summer dandelions
that take flight
at the slightest breeze.

at the end
the story of us
(you) (me)
closing the final chapter
with plot twists turns
too numerous to track
nullifying the middle
the beginning
now just memories like old photos
that fade and fray with
each passing day.
