Castle Of The Phoenix - Poem by Jaya Varma

Dark castle she made
to hide all her fear
and letting it battle
beneath every layer
she saw them fighting
the dreams and thoughts
what seemed inviting
was nothing but drought
she opened the window
called out for the moon
some dark did flow
as the winds presumed
morning kept knocking
but castle silent
a whisper unlocking
when sunshine was sent
they saw her lying
her flesh be red
the fear inside
had long been dead
she raised herself
and left it behind
breaking that shell
which ruled her mind
it was just a game
she found at last
of fear and shame
that would never stop
she sang to the rain
and played thy strings
ashes did claim
they had seen a Phoenix..

    The garuda or gandaberunda rises from life's ashes
    to chance a better life once again signifying man's eternal attempt
    to acheive perfection. (Report) Reply
