A Poem by Johanna

"Everything that burns turns to ash.."


You try to get your story straight
Before you sit down
Before you seal your fate
A bench in the center of town
But only I see you now

We´re standing at the end
But neither of us wants to
But my heart cant pretend
when yours has been with someone new

You try to say the words out loud
Like you´ve got nothing to lose
But you´ve already lost me
So it´s really no use

Are you gonna look me in the eyes
When you say your farewells?
Look at me the way you did
Befoe you were with someone else

Losing the fight, against desire
Must feel like your heart is on fire
But everything that burns turns to ash
and nothing you can do will bring it back
