The Phoenix Rises

A PEACE Of My Mind!



I was getting tiredI had a lack of sleep

Trying to climb the mountain slope

But the path was too steep
I promised her

I’d meet her at the top

There were many obstacles 

There was no way I could stop
I promised her

I’d be there by sunset

Keeping a promise to her

Is never a regret
It took too long

The sun had gone down

In my mind I feared

I would see her tears and frown
I got to the summit

I couldn’t see anything

It was pitch black

No spoils for a king
Some days you think

You’re better off dead

If it didn’t take so much fucking work

So you just lay in bed

And cry like some fucking jerk
She wasn’t there anymore

Didn’t even leave a note

It was getting so cold waiting

I didn’t think to bring a coat
I could hear my heartbeat echo

As I planted my broken promises in the ground

I buried them deep

Because I didn’t want them found
I sighed and then began

My long and lonely decent 

As my mind wandered

At how much my love for her meant
Some days you think

Of the all the little things

That meant nothing in your life

And how inconsequential they are

And yet they hurt your feelings
I slid in the mud down the slope

So I started to roam

Through the dark woods

Till I got down and started my long walk home
I missed the sun rise

As I continued on with my hike

I wish she waited for me

As I reached in my heart and pulled out the spike
Some days you think

What is it all you do it for?

You take your beatings

Time and time again

And still you want more
Some days you think

Some days you think

The day will never end

And some days you think

You got more time to lend

  1. An excellently written poem. The narration is really amazing.

    “She loves, cares and never complains,
    She’s Panacea who takes away my pains.”
