Live, Love, Burn, Die.

 

She was rugged,

worn.

She had lived out her days as any human would,

but this intense emotion in which she had obtained,

 it was shattered instantly by an affectionless change.

His eyes no longer shined for her.

His arms no longer craved her.

He did not need her breaths to survive.

Her lips,

he had stained,

black.

Now she collects wood for her homemade pyre,

and as she stands in the middle,

a kerosene siren,

she holds the match,

watching within the flames,

dancing memories...

Chanting...

"Live, love, burn, die..."

because she knows that when she comes back,

she will once more take flight,

becoming that radiant phoenix,

brushing off the ashes to...fly.

Very well expressed..This

Very well expressed..This reminds me of watching someone lose themselves... there is a quote... 

""The greatest hazard of all, losing one's self, can occur very quietly in the world, as if it were nothing at all. No other loss can occur so quietly; any other loss - an arm, a leg, five dollars, a wife, etc. - is sure to be noticed." ~The Sickness Unto Death

...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

...and did I mention that to me, you are the most alluring writer on here. Your poems make me want to come back and read again...always. They are all good, and I have never felt momotony while reading as I often do. Yes, I am being completely honest.~peace~

trying to make me pass out-cry-laugh-tear up-jump-around-with-joy-while-stepping-wrong-on-the-rug-and-falling-on-my-face-kind of happy?

 

Thank you so, so much~!

JUST WOW~!

Really?

Oh man~!

My day has been framed!

 

It makes me feel good, you know? Knowing that people really do enjoy reading my words. This is why, I believe that I have made the right decision in what I want to do in my life, and I know that it is not going to be an easy road, but nothing ever is. Knowing that all my hard work is being appreciated, it's a relief, and it feels...Great~! Thank you very much nightlight in letting me know. Thank you. <33333333333333

Good! I am glad you were

Good! I am glad you were lifted up by that...but truly, ashes...it is the truth. I admire your writing and presentation so much, and through the way you express things, I feel I have grown... as writer, and I cannot put my finger on why, how, or what it is---probably like I was saying---your train of thought, that allows my mind to just free itself ans ask questions...  yea...yea, i think that's it. Any way be happpeeee shweetie pie!!

~peace~

And I am getting there, one day at a time. <33333

 

But it's more you guys I have to thank.

You all push me more then you know.

If it was not for this site,

than I probably would not have shown the world anything.
