Phoenix Eyes

In a world full of weight
The floating mind hibernates
Behind eyelids that twitch
With a fevered restless wish
 
Behind a wall of saline
Xanax gasoline
Awaiting to be liberated
From eyelash cages
 
Rising from the ashes
Both in harmony as one
Demons in the sun
Clinging to the stages
 
Of lines and pages
Understanding the unseen
And the in between
Scorched messages sent
 
Helping the mind bend
As they return home
Never flying alone
In unity and symmetry
 
Towards a flesh cemetery
Sleepy eyelids blink
Absorbing the smoke ink
Inside arsonist caves
 
Fighting to be revived
 
To become divine
 
Phoenix eyes
