Phoenix Fires Burn Within - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

jealousy festers hate breeds discontent violence
burns in hearts desolate irreconcilably betrayed
jealousy utterly betrayed intensity of pain increases
jealousy powerful feelings storm rage stew in internal cage
jealousy to love to much to care too much intensity slays
jealously blinding tempest hell fire stoked internally rages
to want to much to care to much to love too much fires
to feel to much passion agonies trapped in love unrequited

to yearn to burn with desire to rage with hate enter hell's gate
to burn with love consumes lit souls emotionally physically
phoenix fires burn within flashpoint self-immolation flames
does character bear witness to soul capable of forgiveness?
is soul capable of casting off paralysing despair black void?
menacing is fractured mind not embryonic reborn in phoenix light
