Ashes Dont Catch Fire - Poem by Kathryn Garner

cold as the flakes
thrashing to the snow
as quickly as they melt
on a live cheek
i come to you
and surrender myself
to every bidding
so shallowly tucked away
in your mind

and then you turned
away from this wind
though i tried to sweep you away
you were already gone
gone with the storm
and mine became
a simple ghust of surrender
to failers caresse

no longer did the flakes fall
and no longer they were cold
they were pure snow anymore
innocent of life
but flakes of flesh
of me, a simple surrender
to a crematory
and as these flakes melt
on a dead cheek
[[itself]]
was that same way i returned
to you
darling, never again
you wont burn me again
ashes dont catch a fire
