Before You Fade


One minute gone

Eternity waiting ahead

A perpetual today

Stretching

With no end


Hear my broken whimpers

I’m lying in the abyss

The light of my shadow

My muted screams


An extinct volcano

Burning its walls

A hollow being

A body with no soul


Search for me

Not in the words

I’m hanging in between

I’m the unwritten

The story untold


I’m the lovely façade

Of hatred

But blame me not


My loud whispers

That once were silent tears

Echoing in the mountains

Where no one hears


Touch this heart of mine

Once before you fade

For I’m not sure it still beats.

I find it hard that someone 14 has lived life as much as you apparently have. What wonderful insight you have and depth of feeling. Yours is truly a beautiful gift.

You're poetry is simply... beautiful. And I'm in complete awe of anyone who can write poetry. It's so hard, for me. : )
