Burnt Flesh (Do you see me?)

The madness doused me in gasoline.

The pain struck the first match.

The heartbreak sauntered over to me


and just like that

I was screaming beneath the flames.

Nothing will ever be the same,

will it?

Now that I am charred and scarred and covered in ash?

But maybe I’m okay with that.

The phoenix within my battered soul

settles against the smoldering coals

which have a story all on their own.

She prays and breathes in the fire.

She knows

she’ll know

the right time

and then we will rise higher

in faith

and in power.

And never again will we allow ourselves

to be fooled

by the hidden coward.
