Treasure Island

Shane Engisch

(3/25/1989 / Lansing, MI)

Dragon Eyes

Before the mist cleared and the gates opened
A bright star shot straight up in the heavens
emanating freedom fiercely
A dark dragon followed...stalking his prey

The star flew and flew with uncharted speeds
Until it reached the edge of the universe
The dragon mimicked every move of the star
Through and through to that mysterious edge

As the dragon approached the star he became puzzled
Presuming that the star had been chaste
Only to find a grinning blade in the fangs of Sirius
The cunning companion of Orion

Now the two stood tall, eye to eye
Each roar echoed throughout
A flash and blast, collision beyond grasp
Then the dragon took flight after seeing his own fears

For the wolf's heart was pure
Which reflected the dragon's demons
Disturbing the dragon's focus
exposing his true nature

The dragon blew flames ablaze behind at the wolf as he took to the sky
Only to have them brush away from the incandescent, invulnerable fur and flame of the star
The beast took hold of the dragon's tail by his claws and climbed to it's head
With a strike of ferocity the star came down with the dragon's eyes

As the wolf stood strong with his trophy
The dragon did cry and then fell in a frenzy down the edge of reality
The wolf gave the eyes to his sons
So that dragon would have to beg or fight a wolf
If he were to ever gain his eyes into this world again

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
