The Phoenix Knows When...

She came to me in the eyes of a child,

Blazing a warning!

Shelling out new hopes as if they were endless.

She flood my veins with a burning sense of invincibility

Clarity stricken,

the glug of decomposing viscous opaqueness

Melts into warm throbs

flushed with the fluidity of vinegar through saline truths 

Death is a fools comfort,

A nothingness in mind, body and soul.

I caught a light!

Seered into renewal 

Through the birth of a new day,

With new hopes,

A new vision, 

A future so bright!

Burning with beauty 

She has once again baptised my eyes 

With a new fight,

Written in all the colours of her light.

Hello

Fantastic writing here Smoothie,  there's a lot going on in the

authors voice.  Your strength is felt through your words.

 Although Free verse is not my thing,  I was captured and

you managed to keep me reading start to finish . . Wanting more.

Anyway thanks for this.  Best wishes to you.

Thanks silver, that means a

Thanks silver, that means a lot because I really love your style and verse. I relate to most of it. I was a rhyming and structure junkie especially in my early days. Now I write when and as it comes and tweak as I go :) might just do one to get the rusty brain mechs moving again! hugss

Im looking forward to read it

Judging by all the work I've read of yours.

I really enjoy the power and the images you

Create.  Truth and getting to the point with emotions I can

actually feel.  So allow me to hold you to a Smoothly

written rhyme.  Nice talking with you.   I've just been inspired

to write something without an edge.  thx and ill be reading you

I like "through"

went back to edit my comment but editability is expired. Through and truths are homophones - sharing the same vowel grouping/tones. Through is excellently selected.  - Stella -

You have to fight

While you are alive.

There ain't no fighting

When you are Dead.

I don't know who She is

But I see you took one of the fights

Out of your poem.

Sometimes when people comment

It can seem strange when someone

Changes the poem.

I like it anyways and I would never tell someone

What to do with their poem.

Yeah, I get you. But 7th want

Yeah, I get you. But 7th want readers to enjoy the sentiments. It's important to be innovative but also reachable. What do think works better kS?  In or through ? Asking opinions I can decide :) hugs.  Which fight taken out? Just for clarification mwah!  Much love and respect :)
