A Phoenix Will Rise Soon

In a world where,
black spills from the tortured eyes
and people drink a cup of lies.

In a world where,
darkness forms the core essence
and dementors haunt my demented presence.

I writhe and turn in this self made cage,
Sculpted out of misery and rage.
Silence hovers amidst those sleepless nights,
Far more terrorizing than endless cries.

But now I slowly carve my way out,
As a butterfly breaks the cocoon.
I teach myself to live again,
from the ashes, a phoenix will rise soon.

-Ishita Gupta

  1. I writhe and turn in this self made cage,
    Sculpted out of misery and rage.
    Silence hovers amidst those sleepless nights,
    Far more terrorizing than endless cries.

  3. Great work Ishita! Powerful words and strong feelings and emotions woven into this poem. I love this stanza the most:

    “I writhe and turn in this self made cage,
    Sculpted out of misery and rage.
    Silence hovers amidst those sleepless nights,
    Far more terrorizing than endless cries.”

    Love the reference to the butterfly, lovely metaphor. Hugs and much love to you my friend. xoxoxo Joni
