New Phoenix

By: shelbi Henny

Its primary
That this seemed crafty
Toying with inadequacy
That we cradled its temptation
Yet we took forgranted
Collector’s paperwork
Left in strangers hands
To cerebral dimensions
That played you
Plagued me
Sampling smokers’ delight
Clouds surfacing skies
That are worthy
Billions locked in my heart
By lock and key
Was stolen
For ransom
Hands handcuffed
Relying on thoughts
Clawing at nonsense
We wanted it all
Although i can never fix this
Fix time
Fix you
Love ever after to burst
And i was just a Phoenix
Yet you met in the ashes
Lit the match
And watched me burn
