the dragon.

fantasy dragon

fire – it fills her lungs
scorched from the dragon’s kiss
all the oxygen removed
breathless – never quite like this
claws – daggers that clasp her heart
tear the flesh, squeeze its beat
all the emotions choked out
valves – pump a carnivore’s treat
wings – smothered her in darkness
the beast used them to fade out of sight
she’s left there charred and lifeless
vultures – surround the bones of white
a story of a dragon and a girl
of fiery breath and a black heart
two wild things in the dark
they knew the end was at the start
