Twitter Prompt Poetry

“An Amorous Affair”
No bond greater
No love deeper
No passion hotter
Than a dragon
And his gold.

Passion's Voice poem

Passion’s Voice–
A soft, sultry breath
Against my ear.
Passion’s Touch–
The lightest brush
Of fingertips.
Passion’s Kiss–
A silent dance
To bond two souls.

The Dragon Slept poem

The dragon slept.
He heard its
Even breathing
Rumbling like
An avalanche.
Creeping, tiptoeing
Across the chamber.
He didn’t see one yellow eye open,
Didn’t sense something wrong,
Until he could feel the warmth.

Love is forgiveness.
I know this is true,
Because I see it
In her big brown eyes
And I feel it
Knowing I can’t
Stay upset.

My heart feels like
An open wound
Visible to all
Free to see.
So I try to
Hide it away
And protect it
From further damage.

A throaty rumble
Becomes fiery breath,
Just as skin and hair
Become hot ash,
Burning like paper dolls.

I’m sorry
For every misunderstanding.
I’m sorry
For each angry word.
But I won’t apologize
For the way I feel.

I’m solid and tall
Like a sturdy oak
Standing straight
Weathering wind and rain.
But you’re the fire.

I deal in words and sentences.
I breath life into characters.
As I create,
I also admit
Each has
Changed me.

Deep and sultry,
His voice greets
My ears like
A sweet melody.
I could just listen
All day.

I am the passionate beast

My heart of fire
Beats with
Burning desire—
I am the passionate beast.

Eternal love–
Spoken in breathless syllables
During intimate moments.
Now, another broken promise.

Warm whispers of wetness
And showers softly singing
Through drizzles of discourse.
The Language of Rain.

Slithering and prowling
Black creatures
Creep at the edges
Of light,
Making the night
The land of
Visible darkness.

Once upon a time,
I believed in
Chaotic dragons,
Lithe elves,
Powerful magic
And eternal love.
Oh wait, I still do.
