Love Story of the Dragon

By Alchemist

In age old tales of wonder
Tomes and tombs asunder

The air divulges' as heaven opens
The haven of the beast in an opus

Emperor in the realm of vociferous flight
Voice of fire that engulfs like morning light

Treasure hunter that snares the swan song
Measure of the mountains' magic throng

He sits on a throne of brutality and bone
He wallows in his gold and ash he's sown

His only despair is over his wet seductress
A legendary crowned sea serpent empress

Their romance is akin to their stares and more like moans than purrs
A flame in his eyes and the journey of a wave until it cusps in hers

When his passion and lust is unleashed or breach
His breath is as mighty a love as a poet's speech

But with that amour brings only eternal pain
For when he travels to the gates of true gain

He almost drowns in his sorrow and her ocean queendom
Because he only rules over the sky and volcano kingdom

She dominates his courting of tooth and nail
With a more vicious assault of barbs and tail

A violent thrashing of inferno and monsoon in all directions
A portrait of ferocity more enduring than chaos' convictions

This vehemence display will never leave this mistress perished
So the broken hearted's onslaught is to scorch what he cherished

As sharks and eagles will never befriend or fight
So will these two never love out of death's sight

Infernal monsters to Cupids yell "no quarter"
A burnt love letter is now wrote in the water
