You pulled the strings one more time.
Legend of Valkyries at his prime.
Dancer of lost memories rhyme.
Cinderella of enchanted forest crime.
At the magical forest renewal.
Follow me into the duel.
Where the nights cry it’s cruel.
The black witch will take the jewel.
The wishing well is silver and cold.
Never let you go if I be so bold.
The duchess can keep her gold.
All of your love is on hold.
Lost dreams of this corpse bride.
Yule time was when she last cried.
Surreal paradise filled with pride.
Love songs of how you lied.
Raven is finally here with you.
Vanity of frozen veins that grew.
The whisper of souls start to spew.
The dream begin to come true.
A heart, promised you would keep.
Lonely, and close to sleep.
Legend of the dragon deep.
Slave to the reapers creep
Purgatory homes the sea witch.
Farewell to the waterfall bitch.
The best things are bound to switch.
A mystic devious nightmare to ditch.
Lights down on this Yule heart.
Chased hope like I was a tart.
I’ve been looking at the purest art.
Falling for you, I fell apart.
Here is the tale of Pandora and Master.
Who fell into the water mist disaster
Those little friends and sole pastor.
The night never came much faster.
Amongst the ashes they found peace.
Years of pain begin to cease.
Yesterdays have lost their lease.
Heaven they now have apiece.
Another one of my many dreams,
A bird with wings magnificent and vast.
Being consumed on a fiery pyre,
Watching the phoenix come to past.
It noted my arrival and the tale to be told,
My loved ones reveal themselves to me.
Only you made me feel this loved,
Remember, look for the phoenix in all you see.
My pale, haggard lips part to form a smile,
The winds were cold, but the phoenix is safe.
Even as it turned to desensitised dust,
Do not fear the survival of this tiny waif.
A single feather lies on my back,
Reminding me that I can take all of that.
Chained to the wall with my depression,
Tears that were shed from careless chat.
Dying a thousand times only to be reborn,
Until the silver flamed fires fill the skies.
Consuming the dying trapping brambles,
Taking from you compassion, my prize.
You have given me a strong fight,
To live to hear your beckoning call.
To rise again from that same pyre,
Yet I have no energy, forced to crawl.
You forced the new being out of me, light into dark,
Just to be relived of the wicked thing I once did.
The dark skies are immediately illuminated,
The past does not matter now, my final bid.
For freedom, a life, a phoenix reborn.
