Phoenix

Prancing
dancing
light on my toes
shadows my friends
as I blend
bleed 
face on front
wanting to play.
Games
bitter
harsh
testing strength
heart
mind 
soul
who will win?
You
or 
I?
Words
batter
shatter
control…..
moods
thoughts
desires…..
Your entire world
which I will shatter
destroy 
cause to combust
with impish delight.
Make you pay
yes I will
for obliterating my world.
Tit for tat 
and all that
tis only fair
no?
Ravaging 
bodies etched with scars
come together
in battle we will
but only one will return…..
free.
