“From within perfect darkness I have learned to shine."
Heartbreak can leave even the strongest of men scarred. Like Icarus, I too flew too high and fell. That downward journey tore the fibre of my being and shredded my soul. The gauntlet of love should never be underestimated.
However, I had to get up again and rise like a phoenix from its proverbial ashes. And like a phoenix, I took to flight!
This is a poetic account of the journey I had to go through and a tribute to becoming a better man regardless.
I took a walk in the clouds
And all I found was thunder
The promises of perfect beauty
Were lies and twisted truths
Designed to make me wonder
And there was nothing I could do
As the echoes ran right through me
But to follow those distant drums
Bewitched by their fury
I glimpsed the setting of my sun
And I couldn't help but fall apart
As I listened to the beat of my broken heart
All I found was thunder
* * * *
Killed my heart in a glass cage
for all the world to see
And while the blood was dripping
lost the better part of me
So now I'll paint my future
in crimson crusted lines
For this broken boy isn't lost
he's merely redefined
