Momentary emptiness

Craving for a touch

Yearning for some warmth

Hollow deep inside

Lost since heaven knows when

Knowing it’s the way it’s supposed to be

Knowing that things can’t change

A moment of pain

A pang of emptiness

Momentarily

Dusting it up

Forgetting again

Painting the pain

Celebrating myself

I’m celebrating

Beauty

In all it’s hatred

Rejection

In all it’s sweetness

Betrayal

In all it’s glamour

Disgust

In all it’s reality

Mockery

In all it’s truthfulness

Pain

In all it’s endurance

Hurt

In all it’s passion

Darkness

In all it’s intensity

Yes

I am celebrating

In all

At last, it is Me

At last

I smile

After years of waiting

And displeasure of counting

Giving up my old skin

Closing behind the rotting bin

Stretching wings wide apart

For the first time, learning the art

Forgetting mocks and boos

Smirking at the glares in amuse

Overcoming weakness, pain

Standing up for myself, bondage slain

Welcoming the new me

Set free

No more afraid, come what may

I’m bold, I mean what I say

I feel, proud, I feel pretty

I feel life, in all it’s beauty

Saying to myself

This is my true self

I breathe, claiming the air

Fully charged to no compare

I look up

And

At last

Again

I smile

The Phoenix Rock Star Princess

I’m the Original Phoenix, rock star

In the parallel universe

With anti-rock terrorists at war

Fighting the curse

I fell for the forbidden

The machine gun preacher

I was, you can say smitten

Anti-rock terrorism, he preached

To end our precious blood line

The end, their agendas screeched

But we fought without a whine

I met him once

“Die you infidel!” he said

I almost lost my stance

But only his eyes, I could picture in my head

The battle neared

Killing many, Antis and Rocks

Blood was smeared

People died in flocks

The dead Original Phoenixes rose from the ashes

And finished the battle

The dread was gone

Our coven was safe like always

And so was my love

Killing me in infinite ways

I still sing in tears, mourn

My heart, now as cold as ice

His ashes in the urn

My love never dies
