Burned Again

Jack Owen 2007 (Newcastle)

Her confusing smile and deceiving looks
Are bound to go down in the books
As my heart flutters like pages in the wind
And yet I know I'll end up burned again

I loved her laugh and I loved her stare
Who knew I'd end up down there
Down in the depths of a place I've known
And yet I know I'll get burned alone

These flaky thoughts and spiteful rage
Send me twirling into a blunder of haze
I don't know how I've lost but I have
And I know, I will be burned again.

About this poem

About the kindness of girl that slowly turns into a bitter mess of self hatred and a place every man has been before of heart break.
