I Would Rather Fade Away
Poem By Ivy Christou
If my world were about to end
I would probably let my existence fade away,
Without saying a last word
Or writing a letter to mark my presence.
I would rather disappear as quietly and namelessly
As I came in the first place.
All I hope is that my love for everyone
would not be a secret by then
or a scared assumption,
and that clouds are see-through
when you stare at them from above.
