Dragon

Will you love me as I am,
with my fire
and my tail slashing
across your heart?
Or will you pet me slowly
and, while I sleep on my bed of gold
in my soul’s cave,
smooth my scales
and calm my flying soul
until I forget that I have wings,
and I need you to show me
the clouds,
the sun,
the sea?
