Dragon

My claws are scraping

The shell of the world

I have burned it black

 

Because of you

 

I have become a hideous thing

Switchback and all teeth

Eyes gleaming murderous

 

Touch me again

 

My insides are molten

Flaring like a volcano

As I remember the reaving of my body

 

I will burn you to ash

 

And remember, I never cease to do

Cracking open the earth’s mantle

Crawling forth out of rent sky

 

Because of you

 

Wailing grievously

Within the dark everlasting pain

Breaking my teeth on stars

 

I will only weep-
