Slipping away

Foot steps echoing, echoing
hollow heart beats sounding in my head
I react as if in dreams
Slowly turning to see you fading from my life
Quietly slipping away

The phone sits silent
The computer screen stares coldly through me
The mail box is empty of any friendly correspondence
There's nothing left of you
Quietly slipping away

Phantom glimpses
Of pale gold dancing
Tuneless songs in foreign tongues
While fairies smile from gilded bounds
Quietly slipping away

Red eyes that should be blue
Dull smiles and fading memories
Fleeting moments of insanity
The reality that ruled my life
Quietly slipping away.

To ~ The Albino Shadow
From ~ The unchanging Darkness
