Metamorphosis Chronicles | Pt4

This is a flag of victory

Being raised up into

The star speckled

Infinite sky

I stitched my own wounds

With a burning needle and

A half-hearted, barely remaining

Will to survive

I fought my own demons

Watched them win too many times

Drowned in a bedroom full of blood

Before finally slaying them

This is a poem

Wrapped around the sun

Finally held in my hands

Unable to burn me after

I banished the darkness

The epilogue was an apocalypse

But the sequel is

Fireworks at sunrise
