How to slay The Final Dragon


The Final Dragon
exposed
clad in chains
face of a mirror
hiding it's wounds
in bandages

The trick
is to let it bleed
remove the plastic
bandages
and let it bleed
and yes,
this is in fact
suicide
but don't
second guess
go for it

Bleed it dry
let it cry
break the mirror
let the rebellious shards
fly
the tears will erode
the steel
the metal
the salty water
will feed

When it's over
after the last
and desperate
roar
freedom will ring

There will be no need
to look back

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
