Spiral And Fade

Spiral And Fade

This is the way
you have chosen
to go. 

Spitting and cursing 
at everyone you thought 
you could hurt, 
without looking
at yourself. 
The others 
will not tell you 
how much of a mess
you have been allowed
to become,
but the result
is on display,
falling away from everyone
one person
one action
one end 
at a time.

This may be quick
or it may take years,
but you are spiraling,
and you are fading,
and when you are gone
I will not pause
to mourn,
because you faded from me
a long time ago.

You are going
You are lost
You are gone.
