Phoenix

Spectral, magical flame

Once raging, now tamed

Its passion, weak

Its future, bleak

Once-proud beast, now maimed



Fifth-degree burn

Self-immolation

Accidental, though

When I let myself

Be consumed by the inferno



Ember

Once a flame

Now an ember

Never the same

But always remember

Played like a game

Flame that was tamed

An ember with a tempered temper
