In the shadows of my heart
there are whispers
tearing at the tapestries
let loose like thieves
wanton
lustful for my treasures
they seek the shine emitting from my glorious heart
they want to take this light and smother it
so only darkness remains
they want to bathe in the ashes
dance in the smoke
of dying flame
little do they know
I’ve let loose a dragon
swift and silent
maker of fire
armor plated
with with a gemstone crown
flee now from my heart
shapeless shadows
sink back to the mire
from whence you came
there’s a queen residing here
not impressible
impervious to your temptation
everyday her strength stands firm
her walls strong
against mortar
armies of despair
find no residence there
sink back shadows
blinded
by
luminescence
