Phoenix & Aphrodite

A trickle of blue

Momentum gaining

A wave that crashes

And from the foam

We rise


Building hope

From the ruins

Of yesterday’s

All-consuming hell

We lived


A shadow of what was

Blistering bullets worn

Death comes twice

For those that sin

We perished


Future unknown

Paved in misery

Stringing pearls from wine

Fragmented lives

We live
