From ashes to new

I punctured my heart.
How could I?
How could I?
How could I do such a thing?
I should have let
sleeping dogs lie;
but was it wrong
to be optimistic
and coated in confidence,
ignoring a second thought
of ‘what if’?
…Perhaps!

Here it bleeds fire
that burns a cavity in my soul
throwing my mind in disarray.
and my body
in an uneasy state.
But my brain comes to work
with a certain thought
about the phoenix;
reminding me of how
it must burn to be re-born.

With that as the last piece
to the puzzle,
I emerged from the ashes
of my failed past
knowing I leave nothing behind
as I take the next exit
to a new life.
