The Fade

This is the most painful thing
in the aftermath of your death:
Your memory floats around me
like a bland vanilla sky
that should be deep, rich,
tender, dusk-time hues.
Maybe this is a gift from our Creator,
but I would’ve liked the opportunity
to reject these tortured moments
and feel the brilliant life that we were,
over and again.
