Slipping Away



Little by little as all subsides, I hold onto the familiar space, 
Walking on a similar pace, Letting everything go. 
Little by little.

Second by second it slips away, blurring into an abyss, 
So dark it becomes, unknown to eyes, disappearing into a void. 
Second by second. 


Page by page, as the memories flood, meaningless, 
Don’t they become? Fading are the words that adorned the sheets. 
Page by page. 


Color by color, they wash away, losing charm as they become, 
Nothing other than hidden grays. Pale and dreary, as if they decay. 
Color by color. 


Skin by skin, bone by bone, the muscles chew off as nothing I form. 
A carcass of naught that now rests, only in deeds, only in minds. 
Thought by thought. 

-Momina.

  3. The dreadful sense of inevitability and the awareness of one's final moments - a brilliant and equally intense write. Loved it.

  5. You always add colors to words.
    Words seem to carry a very different connotation under you.
    There's magic in them! It's an always story.
    Keep Writing :)
