Flashback Friday: Phoenix

I’m slowly chipping away
At the pieces of me, you left behind
Rising from the ashes
Like a phoenix ready to shine.

This was written for the prompt: Something you would say to an Ex. So, this applies to all your ex-friends, family and boyfriends/girlfriends. I’m sure there are all kinds of exes you leave behind, or who left you behind. This can be a motivational post because it would give you the push and inspiration to look ahead and be so much more than the person you were in the past. First posted on the blog in September 2018.

Phoenix

A spark trickles
a fire ignites
crawls through my soul
it flares the rage
it burns me whole
I twist, I toil I curl
I blaze before I fall
it swallows me
all that remains
of my spoils
nails and bare bones.


 

Quote: C. JoyBell C.

They say a good love is one that sits you down, gives you a drink of water, and pats you on top of the head. But I say a good love is one that casts you into the wind, sets you ablaze, makes you burn through the skies and ignite the night like a phoenix; the kind that cuts you loose like a wildfire and you can’t stop running simply because you keep on burning everything that you touch! I say that’s a good love; one that burns and flies, and you run with it!”
