Pyre of the Phoenix

fire redeems. ice punishes.

By HufflecupPublished 3 months ago 1 min read

the embers smolder

the flames crackle

the earth splits with a roar

the smoke darkens the sky

the crowd went mad with reverie

passion turned to revolution

the ashes hide their story

justice will be re-written

history makes them conquerors

to be burned at the stake

when the wind changes

light the fire anew

the winter storm rocks the phoenix to sleep

the world achieves a frozen and fragile peace

warriors wait with freezing breath

scarred and battered

never at rest

trapped in an icy undeath

I want nothing more than to dedicate my life to writing, so I figured I would start here to test the waters. I will be submitting stories to as many communities as possible.
