By whosBacon

faded, she faded
i kissed the oasis in my head
only to find my mouth filled with sand
a reflection of another story
believing this is my destiny

faded, she faded
i woke up in a daze
realizing it's only a dream
yet the smile lingers
a bittersweet aftertaste

i looked around
seeing this is no better or worst than where i was
so i dust the sand on my face
put back what fell out of my chest
and continue my journey another way
