phoenix
misstree gathering from ash,
slowly waking to its own potential,
the phoenix spreads wings of newborn fire
and rises into the night.

phoenix flies, proud, strong, testing
each boundary, breaking each, ascending like icarus
(who really did *touch* the sun, despite what they say),
until the force of its own flight
drags flames to starved embers,
and slowly, cruelly, bitterly,
the phoenix falls to ash
to prepare for rebirth,
to face the cycle of glory and decay
once more.

from a thousand suns
it burns on
my eternal desire
a phoenix from a pyre
rising ever higher
my eternal desire
i'm on fire"

analise she crumbles in a pile of ashes
and he rushes to save her.
she threw away the crucufix long ago
tossed aside her bible,
but she raises those softly lidded orbs of hers
up to the sun kissed figure
of her savouir

recovering addict there was no beauty in the ashes she rose from and i feel no cleansing release. when the fire is put out before it burns down to ashes, the only thing we are left with is blisters.

fall in love with a fable and all you get are ashes.

sphinxradio it was with a sly grin that you told me about your alter ego.

you, the phoenix, and me, the pyre.

tumbling about in bed, because we both like to be the one underneath.

lit from the side by tiny white lights, i never see the fire in your face, so to speak --

i see something like distant stars in your eyes,

something that lights up when you talk about passion

and when i fan the flames.

birdmad really?

Terminal 4 i presume.

Other than some of the artwork scattered about it's rather boring isn't it?

the view of this sprawling expanse of dust-bitten city from ground level never ceases to underwhelm, especially from that part of town.

splinken I've seen Phoenix [only from the airport] dozens of times, and I think it looks kind of neat. And hot. I like hot places. 030430

orginal or extra... best places to see it are from South Mountain on a clear night (I.e night after a good storm when the wind has blown away some of the smog)

and there is a good view from the Burton Barr Central Branch library and from the southwest-facing side of the ICU at Good Samaritan Hospital round about the eleventh floor (long story.)

The Buttes in Tempe are probably good, but i was insanely high the last time i was there and my favorite part of Lookout mountain right on the southwest edge of Paradise Valley has been blasted through to widen Union Hills Ave.

Best view overall would likely be from the Compass Room restaurant at the top of the Hyatt Regency downtown. or looking eastward out at the city from the glass elevator that leads from the lobby to the top.

I probably just take it for granted, who knows.

i know my least favorite airport landing is at SFO.

at least if i'm in a window seat, goddamn plane always looks like it's gonna come right down into the bay and i am something of an acrophobic.

(the irony of a bird afraid of hights, no?)

splinken I'll remember all that for when and if I ever actually make it out of the Phoenix airport.

Landing at airports in oceanside cities gives me the willies. Flying in general scares the B. Jesus out of me, but taking off and landing next to/over the water is totally terrifying. I guess this is one of the reasons I'm partial to changing planes in Phoenix.

crimson god help you if you are a phoenix
and you dare to rise up from the ash
a thousand eyes will smolder with jealousy
while you are just flying past

devalis caged phoenix
rivulets of flame
flow in your veins
and through your frame
but you don't even know your name

voices whisper
too loud to ignore
want to know more
what's in store
when you rise from ashes, open your door

fire on her tounge and in her heart
burn your bridges before they're crossed
so your head is caught up in the haze
and every escape
is scorching raze

Scott I am the worst type of IDIOT
The one that beleives in his own immortality
The one that knows what he is doing at all times
The one that has choices, not addictions
The one who is king of his emotional universe
The one who knows that eventually she'll
come around
UNTIL THE NEXT TIME SHE BURNS ME TO CINDERS, SLAUTERING EVERYTHING I EVER THOUGHT TO COMPREHEND OF LOVE AND I GET HIGH ENOUGH TO FORGET I'M THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN SEE MY TEN FOOT TALL BULLETPROOF CHEMICALLY INDUCED SUPERSUIT,WHICH I PRAY(SINCE I WILL HAVE COMPLETELY LOST MY SH-T)HELPS ME SURVIVE WHATEVER I'M UNAWARE THAT I'M DOING THAT PROBABLY WILL KILL ME.
Then I'll start over.
I'm the PHOENIX of idiots...
