Lets hide my heart in the valley of ashes
where now she belongs till phoenixes day
sit snug in the winged arms of dragons kind
I promised we would never leave you behind
remember my eyes in silver moonlit mist
think me as man, the one that you kissed
your breath will be my breath
my blood will beat in your veins
as my heart will beat for yours
in this communion of flames.

For when you take a dragons heart
he'll take your own for it's treasure
and not in a thousand years
could you match their measure

For the love of dragons
can be selfish and cruel
and magic they wield
can be directed at you.

Slithering around my organs, twisting in my chest,
Fire-breathing on my soul, in my mind it makes a nest,
Roses of faceted scales, glitter on its spine,
Intoxication like red wine, I can’t resist their shine,
I bite my tongue, hold back the words,
In dreams I might speak out, but smoke and steam have filled my throat,
I can’t hold back a shout.

Time and risk caught up to you;
Gagged you into silence.
Chasing down the dragon was
Your favorite form of violence.

I saw its markings on your skin;
The gauntness of your eyes
Your searching fingers scratching down
To truth, as you breathed lies

China white won this round, love
You thought you'd always dance
The dragon chose another one
And turned its gaze askance.
Toss a penny my way
