CHIMERA

by Marica Petrey

Unfold, unfold, unfold

Holding out just to give in

Indulge in the secrets

This mental labyrinth confines

I dreamed inside the dragon’s mouth.

Chimera’s flowering heads of flame

Drowned in the bliss, the scent, the taste

Of me.

 

Unloose this self-destructive fantasy

Abandon all memory,

I’ve given in and you’ve let me out

I’ve given in and you’ve let me out

 

Light blinds, throat burns

skin peels, wings burst

Light blinds, throat burns

skin peels, wings burst

 

Unfold. Unfold. Unfold.

nocternal

 

I rise

I rise

I dreamed inside the dragon’s mouth.

Chimera’s flowering heads of flame

Drowned in the bliss, the scent, the

 

taste

 

Of me.
