the phoenix rises

Sardonic Saturation's Demise (for Tamar's request)

Sorry for my sorrow
So sorry for my pain
Simply I adored you
Then you left me once again
Sardonic saturation
Sent me spiraling senselessly
Separating maturation
Into segments of insanity
Savagery in satire
Screaming into my brain
Slowly sinking into the fire
Of a demon's raging reign
Scavengers scattering
Nauseating scraps of me
Swallowing, devouring
The scabs of demented seeds
Left among the ashes
In piles of smoldering soot
Charred with no lashes
With empty eyes I look
For my savior's salvation
He came and rescued me
With loving revelations
And a heart of purity
Like a phoenix I emerged
Soaring above that deadened sea
That once held me submerged
Drowning the life from me
So, see me as I sing
Of freedom among the stars
Over the moon I sail
As I pass the planet, Mars
On my way to Paradise
My body scales each scaffold
Scraping away your vice
That once kept me so baffled
My eyes are wide open
Seeing in the world a scene
Of beauty in the hoping
Of new light
A life of dreams
