My gift to you, a Phoenix Feather.
-Been a while since I’ve posted-

Flightless Phoenix

Author note- I haven’t been active lately and been struggling to write anything of satisfaction. This piece is in correlation as to why. To give something doesn’t necessarily mean you will gain something in return. Be cautious with how you spend your energy...

Flightless Phoenix

A Phoenix feather

A Phoenix feather is my gift to you.

A Phoenix feather is my gift to you. Plucked

A Phoenix feather is my gift to you. Plucked from my burning wings,

A Phoenix feather is my gift to you. Plucked from my burning wings, a flame of care.

Place this flame

Place this flame in your hollow furnace,

Place this flame in your hollow furnace, bring warmth

Place this flame in your hollow furnace, bring warmth to your steel exterior.

Set ablaze

Set ablaze your crumbling coal,

Set ablaze your crumbling coal, untouched

Set ablaze your crumbling coal, untouched of connecting empathy ignition.

Nurture

Nurture with gentle intentions,

Nurture with gentle intentions, for my fire

Nurture with gentle intentions, for my fire is forged

Nurture with gentle intentions, for my fire is forged from my very being.

Cursed

Cursed your blood flows

Cursed your blood flows as Winter’s child,

Cursed your blood flows as Winter’s child, inept of harnessing

My embers dwindle

My embers dwindle where gratitude

My embers dwindle where gratitude turns to greed

My embers dwindle where gratitude turns to greed. Exhausting inquisition

My embers dwindle where gratitude turns to greed. Exhausting inquisition concludes my caged mind.

My quill

My quill no longer burns cathartic paper,

My quill no longer burns cathartic paper, It remains empty

My quill no longer burns cathartic paper, It remains empty of rejuvenating ink

I am free

I am free of burdening care,

I am free of burdening care, plucked

I am free of burdening care, plucked of my last feather

I am free of burdening care, plucked of my last feather I stand extinguished,

I am free of burdening care, plucked of my last feather I stand extinguished, depleted,

I am free of burdening care, plucked of my last feather I stand extinguished, depleted, flightless.
