#26.Fade Away

Where did you go?
I swear you were here
A minute ago
Standing beside me

I thought I saw you here
Your face and your smile
Almost brought back a tear
As if I cared

I must admit to you
That my heart went places
Dancing to a tune
Of your beauty

I am a nostalgic fool
Thinking only of you
Singing with no rule
Songs of our yesterday

Has love betrayed us both?
Maybe we did realize
There was always hope
For these two lost souls

To never be alone
Is what I pray
As we stand on our own
Before we fade away

Information:

A memory is all it takes. You are left with a glimpse into your past and another reality altogether. ‘Fade Away’ speaks this out as an adventure.

The protagonist remembers and catches onto a tiny speck of his memory. His dearly beloved. He is initially elated beyond possible words and is speechless and dazed. He quickly admits that it was a game that his mind had played on him.

He is reluctant to give up on that memory. He remembers her beauty, her love and everything about her. The songs he sang and tunes he hummed all hit him very quickly. He soon comes to reality and questions the ultimate reason for his current state. He wonders about her too.

The protagonist is a believer. He believes in destiny and all he prays for is satisfaction for himself and for her.

“True love waits…” – Radiohead
