Flight of the Phoenix

You glow with the essence of a Phoenix...        
but oh how hard it is to view        
such a beautiful bird soar so frightfully high        
Achieving the crest of blissful ascent        
only to crash and burn into embers of charred coals    
It's painful to see that scene in your poetry        
repeating episodes on ME TV        
but I can only imagine how he feels        
being trapped inside his Twilight Zone        
the co-star of your surreal final reel        
wanting to save you from the climactic fate        
Without feathers of his own to take flight by your side        
A broken angel unable to follow where fallen angels fell        
Yet feel the blazing heat of your burning desire        
destroyed by a predictable script that begins in ash        
and ends in brimstone's fire      
(for Kitty, because it is the desire of every guardian angel      
to rescue beauty from believing you can't change fate...) jj
