Dragons, Hurt, Deceit

I was told to remove all traces of a previous lifetime.

 

I readily complied, and sent all the once precious memories into the dark of night.

While some remained, most had already gone.

I have yet to set them into a fiery death.

 

The ones in the loneliest confines had already gone, those were the ones of most value.

I would have rid of them eventually.

I may have taken long, but I definitely would.

 

Like a knight slaying a dragon in its dying throes, I would drive my blade to deal it death, and honor its passing with fire.

 

You had told me to behead the dragon as soon as it fell.

 

And I did.

 

I opened the toy box, unlocked with the keys to her mind.

 

I entered your brightly lit castle.

I made my way through the mazes meant to keep the intruders out, the thieves from making off with your treasures.

I am the moonlit knight, I danced to the music of discovery and pursuit.

I had slayed my dragon and its soul, all in its entirety.

 

And yet in the deepest of your dungeon, your dragon is there.

 

Alive and well.

 

A betrayal?

Secrets so long kept, a heart unable to live on?

I shed a tear and closed the door.

 

I looked up at the moon, and the misfortunes of my existence.

One sorry existence.

Mine alone.

All mine.

Mine.
