The day my boy became a phoenix

The day my boy became a Phoenix

my skin was soaked in sapphire

My  shambles   of a heart could not prevail

amidst tears and disbelief


The day my boy became a Phoenix

They gave me such a scorn

We christened him Christopher,

after his grandfather


He was inerrant in my eyes

like no Jewel I’ve ever known

This haphazard universe could not abound

the illimitable mark he had imprinted



Turns out he was neurotic after all

All  I wanted to believe

My beautiful naive poet

I’d bleed to protect till death


And thus the years flew by

I had one genuine thing to learn

When push comes to shove

Turns out we’re neurotic after all


That day was the beginning of my hellish dream.
