Phoenix is Me..


A morsel of you is all I had wanted:
So, I could laugh,
I could smile,
And I could be me..

You made me beg for my very own essence-
And robbed me of my laughter,
You wiped away my smile,
Till I was no longer Me..

You dictated your terms,
And I was blindly to lead;
Thorns that you had embedded
And I was on it to sleep.

You didn’t see me dreaming:
Of a fight and my win..
You didn’t notice my virtue,
And lived like a foolish king.

If you don’t know what I mean
Then look around till you can nomore see,
Your dictates hang suspended in the air,
And so does your hollow esteem.

I am nomore a doormat
That you could stomp upon Me,
I have risen from my ashes;
And now Dwell in Eternity.

My being is now bigger
Than your mind can perceive-
It has a radiance of a thousand Suns;
And, is brighter than you can perceive.

I enjoy my solitude; and I no longer grief..
I convey now what’s in my mind
And I yet do not speak..!!
My words now have re- invented-


My new Laughter,

My old smile,

And a very beautiful Me.

    Oh this is so touching…

    “You didn’t see me dreaming:
    Of a fight and my win..
    You didn’t notice my virtue,
    And lived like a foolish king.”

    The first pic is so cute 🙂

    I love the use of font in this poem, the way you bolden some line and change colours as the narrator changes is a very ingenious idea. A good poem to boot. Very well done.
