Right Now: Love Fades


when the rosy filter ceases

to cover the unfiltered fights 


and the sweet nothings 

turn into always somethings 


as anger takes over

where passion used to stand 


and you’re left crying no longer laughing

from months spent out of a love trance


you’ll know you’ve reached it

the point of no return 


you’ll know you’ve reached it

when you’re forced to face the music


the song that used to uplift

but now only weighs you down


heavy from head to toe

the burden weighs


the burden that love fades
