My Immortal Black Shines
I prayed as a mortal girl, tread mire
looking for peace, as I consumed
the inside flesh of my burning home.
I kneel as a woman trembling before my pyre,
my naked bones resurrected, my soul’s nimbus glows,
my Phoenix rose to restore my faith,
a mosaic of talons and golden layers of silent thrones.
It is an uncharted epitome to uncover change,
universal bonfires leaving me with a conquest of cinders,
cool water follows and continues to cleanse,
an earnest path that has taken me to a heavenly you.
