Poetry Clips – Lest (I Fade Away)


Handle me softly

Lest I fade away

For I am fragile and transient

Like the colours

Of a rainbow

I am but an illusion

Of the atmosphere

Existing only

In your eyes

Like a snowflake

Falling on the flames

I can last

But a moment

In the warmth

Of your gaze
