The Phoenix

The Phoenix


Born from ember,
That's what I am.
Born by crystallized blood,
Born with the heart
Of the phoenix.

Iron pierces my heart
When tears hit my chest,
But my pain
It's green.
You cannot hurt me.
When your bullets
Ricochet off my heart
You will feel the glow
Of my strength.

Your words,
Your stick and stones,
Your will to strike me down
It ignites the fire,
The will to be ember
The will to be more than possible.
I am more than bulletproof
From your hate.
I'm more than diamond
From your iron.
I'm more than titanium
To your power.
I'm unprecedented,
I'm ubiquitous.
I'm more than human.
I am the phoenix.


As you can tell, I have seen Maleficent: Mistress of Evil this week. For this reason, I will be making odes to my favorite Disney Villains.

Glass

Crystals reflect in my eyes. 
The color is so clear, so sharp,
It's like light blaring in my eyes:
My eyes begin to cry.
No dye,
And the reflection,
It tells no lies.

In the transparent crystals,
I see the misty black.
My horns
My raven wings
My feathery dress;
It's all black.

But I have a heart;
My lips are red as blood
In the mist of the crystals.

But some bubbling liquid,
Something that makes a fizzing sound
Makes every color fainter.
It's faint version of the hue
Of my lips.
Engulfing the crystal.
Little bubbles,
Little round crystals
For the cylindrical
Glass.

My soul,
My colorful yellow-green eyes
Are what reflect.
They're all that's left.

I have great news. I’m going to be writing a book on here, but for this to happen, I need your input.

Comment below, please, with a yes or no: do you want to see a full-on novel exclusively on WordPress?

Thank you.
