The Phoenix Heart

Born of a glowing enber..

Writhing and twisting in the flame of life…

In love.. incandescent…

Then burned to ash as love dies…

Leavening but an ember..

Again it rises..

Illuminating the world in beauty..

And again… death… and ash…

A tiny flicker again finds hope..

Raising its head once more…

It sings its song of warmth and love..

Bereft of an answering song…

In sadness… again grows cold..

And again is not but ash and ember..

The spark burns my flesh as the flame did not…

And so with a heavy heart..

I put out the light..
