ivy skies

Phoenix

Being consumed by passion
Till there is nothing but spent ash
Then rising,
Newborn
To fall in love with the flame,
To burn again
And again
Knowing that he will extinguish
Her to coals
But she reaches
For him anyway
Just a phoenix
Beging to burn

    I didn't expect such brilliance so soon.... natural talent that is.
    Perfect.

    Catherine?
    You make me shiver with those words.
    It's brilliant.
