The flames

The flames

A Poem by Johanna
"

A song I wrote inspired by the radio again..

"


It was fire meeting wind

Spreading fast, I felt the heat, I let you in

It was wind meeting fire

Spreading fast, I felt the love, I felt the desire


and then the flames hit my heart

Rising like a wall in the dark

Shadows making patterns on the wall

and I couldn't feel the burns anymore


It was fire meeting wind

Spreading fast, I felt the heat, let the games begin

It was wind meeting fire

Spreading fast, I felt the lies, burning down our empire


and then the flames hit my heart

Rising like a wall in the dark

Shadows making patterns on the wall

and I couldn't feel the burns anymore


Both of us covered in smoke

Burned in my lungs as I woke

and then you let go of me

It burned past the third degree

and then the water hit the flames

Falling down on us like rain

but it couldn´t put out the pain


of the flames hitting my heart

All the walls are falling apart

Just ashes on the ground

I loved you

But you burned me down

My pleasure.
Intentional or not, this makes me think of the eruption of 79, the destruction of Pompeii. I think about one of thousands of Romans fleeing from the raging fire, feeling love towards their town and family and friends and the desire to save something from there.

Anyway, I like this. Is there maybe a recorded version somewhere to check out?

the fire of a genuine song and a poetic work of art, excellent Johanna :)

Not only you wrote very good song but also metaphors. A body burning like a house, lies that spread out like fire. Good write.
