Five Days Gone

Five days gone

in search of my sanity

After dozens of bottles searched

it eludes me still

The song of the dragon calls to me

taunts me

weighs heavily on my eyes

The surface of the bar against my cheek

is blessedly cool as I take my leave

I smile

For my time has come at last

The dragon’s breath washes over me

warms my icy flesh

burns away my sins

An emerald green eye peers into my own

it bids me come ride

Icy talons envelop me

The chains of my life are cast aside

Look for me in the fire-streaked sky

riding upon my dragon’s back

My Virginia by my side

And a smile on my face
