“Fading Away” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Fading Away”

By Ashley O’Hare

Fading away

into the light of day

I’m sorry to say

I’m glad you can’t stay.

It was fun while it lasted,

but it was always too good to be true.

Dreams never make sense;

like the picture of me with you.

A new day.

A new chance.

A new start.

A new life.

Beginnings can be terrifying,

but nothing

in this world or virtual reality

scares me more

than beginning each day

on a broken record

with you.
