Don’t Fade My Friend, Just Go

“I’ll fade slow,” you promised,
And that sliced my heart in two.
It felt like you pulled a bow,
And the sharpest arrow pierced my core.

While lies are sour and truth bitter,
This honesty of yours has me shaken.
Don’t take me wrong dear friend,
I truly appreciate the upfront truth.

Dear friend, I don’t need your mercy,
Don’t fade slow, just go.
I don’t think I can ever bear,
Losing you in bits in pieces.

So, sever the ties and fly high,
I wish you all the joy.
And if you want to return,
My heart stays open.

    Good post Shreya.
    I thought you wanted her to go unless in the last line you said you’ll wait for her if she wants to return.

    Your word art is so exceptional and emotional, I have to limit my self to 2-3 posts a day, (if that is, I want to maintain control of my emotions throughout the day). Thank you yet again for another wonderful poem.

        Heh heh, yes I know you are exactly correct. I love your clarity with truth, and I love the infusion of humor, it shows that, woven in among all your finer qualities, there is a grade A sense of humor.
        Your combination of poise, class and wisdom prove why you are such an excellent role model for younger generations, and for those others of us, you are a wonderful example to either learn from, or be reminded of certain things. Thank you for your specialness.

        Hmmm, yes, this is most uncanny and yet, wholly appropriate; “flying in the air” is the exact place I expect to find an angel.
        This explains your awesomeness; you and your gift are literally divine in nature.
        I don’t know why I didn’t see it before, but it makes so much sense. It is sooo clear to me now, and now that I have seen, I can’t unsee.
        I used to doubt the existence of angels, but how can I now, with you as the best proof.
