Phoenix Taking Me High [rev.] - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

New paving looking better as fear & anxiety
slowly subsides, no longer feel like a beggar
in my own home, gripped by fear from seeing
living grass replaced by dead paving; calmed
by seeing your vision where all seems to be

Returning to normal - you’ve stopped sighing
endlessly - your fear as great as mine, though
you’d never admit it - tonight it is the first time
I’ve felt happy at home ready to tackle life. A
Snow Queen at work where overdrive aircon

Makes me purple & blue, a dreamer at home
who likes being outside with bees, thank you
for bearing with me - I withdrew in angst from
our little world; thank you for holding onto me
too as your fears burned up giving birth

To a new Phoenix taking me high…
