Like the PhoenixCracks marr the surfaceLike the Phoenix by nucleocide
Of your pristine face;
Neglect and solitude
Left acrid distaste.
Fear, anger, loathing
Guiding every step.
Like the Phoenix: rise above,
Or perish with regret.
Free BirdFor many a day my wings have been bound,Free Bird by jewlofthelotus
Either by darkness, by chaos, or by false comfort found.
Molding myself into the shape of my shackles,
I denied to myself all of the things that I might tackle.
But then you came along bearing a key to the lock,
And slowly released me from the shell that I mocked.
My feathers drew up one by one at the opportunity,
And my lungs breathed out a song that sang of great jubilee.
So now here I'm standing, wings spread, feathers fanning,
Ready for flight to a new world, a new landing.
Where the wind will take me is yet to be known,
But these wings have been strengthened and won't be overthrown.
No matter my fate, I will always be grateful,
And in my heart, there is a spot for you that I'll cradle.
Sky FallI used to feel like I could fly thirty thousand miles highSky Fall by jewlofthelotus
But then the sky fell on to me like flakes of snow fall on the sea
Stars melting in my eyes, drops of darkness rolling down my side.
UntitledAll the worlds have burned to grey.Untitled by jewlofthelotus
All the seas have drifted away.
The stars in the sky are covered and black.
The sun is cold and chills my back.
The colors are dull and boring my mind.
The light is distant, yet burning inside.
The voices around me are screaming and yelling.
There are no people. The silence is bellowing.
