The Dragon & The Phoenix
Filled with pride, ego, and power he set out to destroy her.
The Phoenix in an unsettled rest surrounds her self with love, peace, harmony and beauty. She knows of the quite storm rumbling below her, but with a firm footing in her faith she is prepared for the finally battle.
He comes towards her with an untamed, dark and violent spirit, but she is unmoved.
Like the most elegant dances performed by the most praised dancers, they fight. However, their fight appears to others as a simple lover’s quarrel, but upon deeper observation the truth is revealed.
Once upon a time they were one… he lead and she followed without question, and with complete trust. Now like an unexpected shift of the earth’s axis. A bitter war between them rumbles on. Swords are drawn and flesh is sliced open, pure red blood flows, and pain is suppressed as they fight on uncaring of who lives or who dies. No longer do they fight for their own lives it is all about the battle of good verses evil.
Who will win, who will lose? He vows that no one will have her, she promises she will one day know happiness. The battle continues on, and in the end only one is left standing.
Dropping her sword she kneels down besides her fallen love. She holds him close, resting his head on her beast, as life slips away from him, he understands now, what he should of understood before, that no one can defeat love.
As she whispers her final good bye, she lifts her soul to the Creator to be renewed and returned to fight the darkness with love once again.
