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

My eyes are closed and
I can still feel your smile on my face.

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

My days are long, and longer still.

You 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.
