Once


His hair was shorter then,
before the dragon. Before
he caved to the wiles of
woman, and wild of sky.

Before the sword fell
into sheath for good, and
the woods swallowed them
all whole, happily.

Ever.
………………After.

    This feels very real. Nicely done.

    Isn’t “dragon” some sort of drug terminology? That’s what this makes me think of … your ex. 😦

      I can imagine it might be, I guess. For taking a drag or whatever. Hadn’t thought of it that way. Don’t ruin my dragons for me, chica. 😉

    The love of a good woman will slay a dragon. From then on, he’s just a drag.
