Dragon

.

He breathes fire
and slays her silent song

embered syllables
scalded tears
consumed by crimson dawn.
Smoldered shy sun blaze
once bitten
burned twice,

he breathes fire
and turns her cindered heart
to ice.

  4. Love the rhymes, the image of the dragon, so powerful. This is hot stuff, De! I clicked on your link at Poetic Bloomings… maybe I should just leave links instead of posting full poem and also including links. Hmmm… Love, Amy

    Oh wow, I love this:

    “once bitten
    burned twice,

    he breathes fire
    and turns her cindered heart
    to ice”

  8. “embered syllables
    scalded tears
    consumed by crimson dawn.”

    Indeed….These are the kind that sting…such passion in this poem, I can feel that dragon breathing fire on my neck. Very nice, De!

    Very sad one. Not a very nice dragon at all! Loved this: “consumed by crimson dawn.” But do not like that dragon!
