fading away


*fading away*

i was there...
right there;
yet i was not there ...

i watched from a distance,
like a faded memory;
watched myself disappear
from the lives of others - 'poof'
as if i had never been.

i was there ...
right there;
in front of them,
yet they could not see -
i was a faded memory
a photo covered with dust
lost in the attic,
amidst the unwanted.

i was there ...
right there;
yet i was not there.
