Phoenix Tears

(Another from my other blog. Found it today and was surprised at how applicable it is right now.)

Darkness engulfs you.
It is caving in on you.
The heaviness smothers you.
And in the darkest of darks
The blackest of blacks
The phoenix bursts into flame.
And when you thought things couldn’t get any darker,
All hope is lost; all hope is gone.
Burnt, extinguished, charred.
All that’s left is ash.
Dull, gray soot in a heap on the floor.
The soot settles in the somber air.
And just when you think there will be no end to this despair;
That the dank and heavy darkness will overcome you,
The ashes stir.
And subtly they begin to take shape, a form.
A phoenix is reborn.
Out of the ash, a phoenix is reborn.
And in your darkest dark of nights
Your blackest black of storms
A brand new phoenix is reborn
He comes to you, he sheds a tear
It heals your wounds, your heart, your fear.
