Phoenix. Poem by Hannah York

Phoenix.

Rating: 5.0


I burned it down,
I burned it all,
the house the trees the forest and the seas,
my memories flicker and fade as the embers burn to black and grey.
The world I knew smoulders from view as flames engulf and renew.
When there was nothing else to burn I set myself on fire
and from the ashes and the flames these bones will rise and rise again.
