Phoenix

Abandonment is the world’s 
most commendable artist. 
Crosshatching portraits of my 
interior psyche in sensitive cerise. 
I find his sketches deviously irreversible; 
predicting paranoia in raspy voices. 

Contour lines repeat in guttural voices: 
“We have great plans for you”. 
Tense hours of stilted heartbeats 
dig their unanimous heel in time's back. 
Sooty Stygian canvases break in two; 
fiery golden arrows swoop down to 
spear me from above. 

Where I used to trust 
angels slit my throat with malice. 
Days bring blazing inferno, 
consuming the will to live eagerly 
as solemn silences stretch. 

I sense vacantly from under my 
scorched pile of relics, 
that my resistance has fallen 
on the battle field. 
Dying embers glow red 
in my iris's. 

Even though wounded endeavors 
smoulder the mourning into my eyes. 
I'll ascend as a phoenix 
out of the firestorm. 
Painting myself another new day 
in serene blue watercolours.
