The Phoenix rose

only to destroy herself

in the avalanche

the desire to self detonate


It hurt as much as it helped

building her own gallows

addicted to the different mechanisms

of her great escape


Ever in the continued pursuit

of that which eluded her

but unrequited she could do forever

the silver lined storm cloud
