Autumn leaves Are a trick of the mind. An illusion of beauty, That mask the harsh reality Of what they represent.
Mesmerized by their colors People mistake them for beauty.
But what are autumn leaves really?
They are leaves Changing Inevitably changing With no control over the matter Loosing what they once were altogether
And then When the cold fully encompasses them And it becomes too much to bare any longer, The simply fall away, Completely forgotten by the people who were once Infatuated with their beauty But have lost interest now Because they are no longer appealing to the eye.
