he slayed the dragon

he slayed the dragon
without a sword or blade
the dragon that was festering
in her heart
the dragon that grew in size
from all the lies and betrayal
she suffered in her life
one kiss…those three words
she heard so many times before
the words she believed
the kisses of passion
the door she opened to
so many men before him
with her legs curled
around his back
as they made love
each movement he made
pulsating within her
she looked into his eyes
deep black eyes of coal
knew it was heartbreak again
soon the dragon would be back
it’s long talons digging into her heart
one tear streamed down her cheek
knowing betrayal would soon begin
she finally realized
there are no knights in shining armor
love is only a fantasy
