? THE DRAGON INSIDE

 

There’s a Dragon living inside of me

 

Just beside my heart

 

He keeps it beating when it starts to falter, and

 

Calms it when threatens to fly apart.

 

From time to time he

 

Asks the gargoyle in my head

 

For help who then

 

Scrambles down to swing from

 

My earlobe saying:

 

Here is Sanctuary, sanctuary”

 

Reminding me not to

 

Ride the crazy-line

 

Every time I go out of my mind…

 

The butterflies in my stomach

 

Turn into sprites when they

 

Visit the gargoyle,

 

Traveling up my spine

 

Avoiding the dragon, who

 

Is temperamental around snack time.

 

But,

 

Most mysterious of all is the

 

Curious creature that rules them

 

From within my soul…

 

Not quite a beast, but without a name

 

To tame it’s coiled up power

 

I nervously wonder

 

Who controls it?

 

Surely

 

Not

 

Me?

 

But then,

 

Could it be me...?
