Dragon of My Dreams

Dragon of My Dreams

A Poem by Kori Fitch

Just like the mythology of dragons...wisdom, fierce, flying, breathing fire...


You are the dragon of my dreams

breathing sacred air into my faded flame.

As time and space shift, a translucent

phoenix climbs from the shadow.

Are you the ancient mariner who has

mapped my endless deep sea?

I am a tempest until you embrace me

ebbing and waning no more.

You are the dragon who swims

beneath the wicked facade

hunting me like a champion of fate.

I expected something dif when I read the title.This is still a well worded fear of the men who presue us sometimes.I have been in a 16 yr relationship but I watch the dating rituals of my friends.This poem reminded me of them.Scared of the right dragon in love with the wrong one.Taken by the stongest.

Each line could stand on it own. I like the use of the sea and the dragon to make your point. I like the strong ending. Thank you for the outstanding poem.

I am a late bloomer as far as writing goes, but it seems as if I was pregnant for a long time with ideas, passion and need for expression. Technically I am a English teacher, but don't worry I only c.. more..
