A Lighter Shade Of Fade by Barbara Moore

You are disappearing
a little more each day

I thought I could keep you close
bridge the range of distance

But there is no super highway
No well-paved two-way street

No flowery lover’s lane
Only this pebbled path

I kick the tiny stones
as I step in place

moving neither forward
nor in reverse

Peering into cavity
of starless night

I glimpse the shadow
of what I think

I still remember
of your face
