Dragon Heart

Dragon Heart

By Rebecca Braun.

He saw her world
through tempered glass,
universes traveling
in present and past.

A human form
did bedazzle his sight,
fire-breathing lungs
fell in love one starless night.

Save for her
shining like the sun,
his dragon heart
fearlessly won.

To reach her world
his only prize,
heaven or hell
would be his demise.

Crashing through planets,
asteroids and stars,
his nostrils flared,
scraping scales and scars.

Flashes of blue, green,
electric light!
Breaking through atmosphere,
an explosive sight.

Shards of pain,
eyes that wept,
massive strength
meets massive death.

He fell to earth
not far from her feet,
fear and loathing
her eyes did speak.

His crushed body broken
breathing one final sigh,
his eyes did behold
true love and good-bye.
