Within the Dragons Dream

within the dragons dream lentescura (1)

Molten gold runs through me warm as blood and lifts my wings
spreading with thunder
and power like the lightning storm
to be within the dragons dream is to be wrapped in scarlet and memories of a mighty fall
the shock of plunging
plummeting cloud clad
the wind may whisper adversary
but I scream my defiance back into it
and let my wings carry me
to farseen mountains where even the air is strange
my heart and my resolve hardening
as the fire kindles in my veins
the scent of gold and blood lures me
sings to me in siren tones
and I will go where that song leads me
full of heat and spice and shining like a morning star
resplendent in gemstone armor
as terrible and beautiful as the crimson dawn
I will remember who I am
and I will fear no living being
for dragons do not bow

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
