Dragon Vein

The brew of words that simmer
boiled down to pour into my thoughts
I speak them in hot sips on cold days

You have gone away
tightly tucking in your outer clothes
keeping the skin of you outside my touch

Past carbon exposures are now past the use by date

With you by my side I was brave enough to cut the dragon vein
purging the blind bile
your hands unfolding my forming wings
I breathed and suckled on honeyed fire licks
Alas burning the elegance of chance

Impervious to how vulnerable I was to the Perilous bridge
believing risk is the reason to live

Aurora is my new mane given to me by myself
I will not fear the lonely wallflower
I will not hunger the illusion
When the olive branch grows near I will know how to climb on

Shuffling the card deck is passé
I will venture out without the safety net of the Ace of Hearts
no desire to flip the bottom card
soon enough this will reveal in life turning up each new day
I am Aurora
I am a new breed of flying dragon
