Poem: Fading Love

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Fading love is a poem about how in the beginning their love is strong but her feelings begin to slowly fade when he makes her feel like she is not at home.

She detaches herself and find solice in the comfort of her flowers. A home is where the heart is.

Fading Love

In the beginning,

she feels head over heels in love

with every fiber of her being,

content to spend the rest of her days with him.


His smile is like a school-boy crush,

displaying honest actions of a man in love,

boasting out loud, “Nothing is too good for his girl!",

holding her hand in his,

securing the windows and doors

for times she will be alone.


But the instant he is upset

the look of hate looms in his eyes,

like a dagger

cutting into her heart,

speaking a hurtful tone,

reminding her this house

is not her home.


Her love slowly fading

detaching her heart from his fervent hold,

she creates a space for emotional freedom,

taking joy among her flowers

listening to the sounds of nature,

where her heart belongs.
