Fading Answers

By Damien Knight

I want to answer, fear to reply
I cannot shake the vision in mind
Just a far dream, a pretty lie
The way she smiled with her eyes

If I answer it will break me
A heart is no sturdy thing
I, such a fool, trusts blindly
Daring to dance among the trees

Like all things of beauty, gold
The shadows fade and the image lost
Her small round face not mine to hold
Every detail fades growing cold

Am I to answer those words that echo
So similar to the one in dreams
If I dare? no I must let it go
Yes just as the vision lets me go
