Rise of the phoenix

Rise of the phoenix short poem

My wings are clipped
my heart bleeds
my eyes have sorrow
that you haven’t come to pass
my soul lies battered and debauched
and my limbs are but wasted
my senses make no sense
and I am all alone

Wish I could die
consumed by fire
maybe then rise again
to be a golden flame

discover myself afresh
and make my presence felt

What a wish @zyborg to be the mythical bird Phoenix, just to have your presence felt by a love so unkind. Anything for love, we might say, such noble feeling of a really faithful and ardent lover. You have captured figuratively in your poem the essence of such extreme longing.
