Phoenix Rising

Cracks appear over a vermillion egg
Intense heat radiates from its deep fissures
With a high chirp the creature is born
Among the heated gravel, ember and thorn

The beast quickly takes wing with a blaze of glory
Raining upon humanity her incandescent fury
Setting ablaze all that man has foolishly created
One life inadequate to keep her anger sated.

The aviatrix ruffles her aged crimson feathers
To this mortal world she has no meaningful tether
We have failed her in this lifetime, once again repulsed
In a burst of iridescent flames she is engulfed

Brilliant fire surrounds her scarlet frame
As she crumbles into ash, wings aflame
From the cinder she will once more be reborn
To continue this cycle of fanatical scorn.

Wildfire

Emerald flames rise and consume,
Corpses of the lost shall be exhumed.
Finally everything will be reduced to ash,
And the world will implode in a green flash.

Embers from below constantly grow,
Not a soul can understand how to stop the flow.
Could this heat be not of physical form,
Started from a tormented emotional storm.

Lightning of grief, thunder of sorrow
Rains of sadness fall like theres no tomorrow.
The eternal wildfire will not be expelled,
Until the monster inside is quelled.

Inferno’s Masquerade

Embers dance as flames follow
Matched head to head with the shadow
Eye to eye as the demons dance
Take a look or you might lose your chance

For this masquerade happens seldom
In the depths of their fiery kingdom
Where neither wears a cloak or mask
Both engulfed in the other as they bask

To separate them is out of the question
Since one does not exist without the other
Locked in an endless swirl of infinity
An exquisite duo befitting nobility

The inferno is ablaze as the darkness sets in
One step after the other, neither shall win
Together forever, fire and its shadow
An elaborate waltz that will leave you hollow
