past lives

the me i was moments ago died to allow me to be the person i am now

i worry he died in vain

did he take the coward’s way out to avoid the pain of life

as this version fades in the dull ache as well

i feel envious

if there were a way to hold you tightly

that version of me would happily grow old with you

but we both know that isn’t in the cards dealt to the fool

so excuse me while i fade away and pass this burden to the next iteration to hold

loving you is the single greatest impossibility

just ask anyone that’s met you

farewell my dearest

until i am born again to fall for you anew

yours always

~ the fading fool
