In the dark night of the soul
We fight to breathe
Deny the morning
Remain in darkness
Refuse the light
Stay in shadow
Light is love
As a Phoenix I was burned to ash
When I awakened my body ached
My soul fought through the pain,
Heart fluttering like wings expanding
The walls were gone
A soft light,
Getting brighter as my eyes adjusted
Deep intake of air
My arms stretch to the sky
Expanding me across the universe.
New skin basking in the sunlight
Soul vibrating to the rhythm of the truth
Sending lies to the shadows.
Trembling legs getting stronger
Hands grasping knowledge
Touching my face I feel my lips as they curve to a smile
I scream passion to the wind!
