To phoenix or not

She thought she had already done that.

Risen from the ashes.

She had beat that beast.

Yet it was seen that she just couldn't really burn herself down. 

She wanted to cherish what was left behind.

She wanted to see the pieces scattered. 

Later... when she was tempted to beat herself up again. 

But really, what she found is that it was better back then.

Her heart was more open, expression was free.

She wanted so badly for it to be the same.

Yet she'd changed. 

She became... afraid.

Thinking thinking thinking. Should we start it all from here. Yeah, well, probably. It's our work and we can do what we want with it.
