Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

let sleeping dragons lie

“ … let sleeping dragons lie”



Your world has become my padded cell,

for a dragon’s soul cannot be encompassed by

limitations and definitions.


You’ve locked me into deepening shadows,

where my once fiery breath no longer blazes.


I cannot sail on the wind in these chains,

but you have not conquered me.


I bide my time, of course,

believing no one hides a dragon forever –

and someday you’ll learn,

you should have let me lie.
