I’m caught by the dragon once again


gleaming scales flash

with leering scarlet eye, he taunts

with languid complacency

he expects me to acquiesce

trails of oppressive smoke invade

my soul

an attempt to make me less than whole

but I hold myself erect in his face

I battled this monster before

I know enough to look to his eye

and defy

when he tells me I can’t escape

from his prison

because I’ve already learned to be free
