Ich Gebe Auf

Robert Frank's 'Fading to dust'

Robert Frank’s ‘Fading to dust’

I remember when I took
the first sight of you
into my heart

Even when my eyes are closed
I can still feel a smile upon my face.

Now as I lie down with loneliness
and pain I regret the day
for ever giving in to you.

My days are long, and longer still.

You once told me
that we have no place
in this world.

Maybe we will in the next.

I despise the will of heaven
to send you into this world
and not make me the
first woman to know you.

  1. The longing in the this poem is very palpable but at the same time, this isn’t a drop of vindictiveness in it. There’s just a melancholiness to it and of course ironic regret. The piece also kind of shows how our feelings toward people can put blinders on us and make us only focus what is before us…than what really truly lies in front of us. Great poem Aidy.

  2. Thank you, Poetess. So very honored to see your comment. Yes, love and melancholy goes hand-in-hand. Beautiful analysis on the piece as well :)
