phoenix (poem)

0

i quail to think of the year past

when days i spent i thought would last

and helpless i clung fast

to what now has crumbled all to dust

     amidst the ashes i hoped to see rise

     a phoenix, ah! lost dreams and sighs

     escaped me, the forlorn hiss

     of a flame in its demise

times i have spent in solitary musing

moments passing, echoes rising

from emptier than empty caverns, cursing

the endless void, silence growing

     slow, a form takes shape amidst ashes

     foundation of unvoiced dreams and wishes

     an undefinable haze form approaches

     taking wing, the phoenix rises

spirits move me

i am caught

in a whirlwind

of ambrosiac vapors

the essence

envelops me

i am lost

floating

sweet moments

of haze

i am dazed

drowning

i rise above the clouds

dreaming

bubbles burst

i fall

fall

below the clouds

beneath thundering waves

and

sky meets sea

i sink

beneath turbulent torrents

of reality

i grope

grasp

gasp

stars fall out of the sky

and

the heavenly flame is extinguished

i crave

the light

the warmth

only cold remains

dismal

i await

a fable, a myth, a dream

the phoenix

i await

you.
