Treasure Island

Tara Williams


Phoenix


Watch
As my wings burn
Incinerating my heart

Watch
As I demolish myself
Know you played a part

Watch
As I fall weakened
I fall to my knees

Watch
As my breathing slows
I throw away my heart's keys

Watch
As I fall asleep
Forever I'll stay

Watch
As my ashes scatter
Nothing is okay

Watch
Out of the ashes
I rise, stronger than you

Watch
This isn't the old me
Nor is it the new

Watch
As I walk away
My wings catched aflame

Watch
As my wings spread
Proud of who I became

Watch
As my wings turn to ashes
Disappearing once more

Watch
As my heart leaves me
Falling to the floor

Watch
As I will be stronger
The next time I rise

Watch
As I will be wiser
My soul never dies

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
