Phoenix

The Fire of the Dawn by @deadpoet88

~*~*~

I awoke, in silence
Submerged under water
Feeling the rush of calm chaos
Bubbling up to the surface

A deafening thirst for insanity
Only to be stuck in a moment
Of the purest tranquility
As the world went spiraling down

And somewhere, the voices faded
As my universe darkened
Change the only constant
Constantly pushing me under

I could not be perfect
Honestly, I never tried
One learns to notice these flashes
Of disappointment in their eyes

They always said I was nothing
Just a stranger passing by
Forever to be forgotten
With wings plucked clean and tied

I always was too stubborn
To stay broken, to stay shattered
Some called it delusion
Others a hopelessly lost cause

But what choice did I have?
Except to throw on another smile
And hide this darkness inside
Listening to the echoes of hysterical laughter

But what choice did I have?
To stay buried under giants
Or to grow wings from the fiery chasms
And rise from the ashes and fly
