Fetching Your Dragon's Kiss


There is a kiss in a land so so far away
There are enough to fill the bucket up past the month of may

And the movies have just now begun to spin
and your eyes are asking me if not now...when?

All as I stumble around to answer is so unseen
And the answer is certain but I cain't touch the thing

yes, I'm going to the dragons
dragons, yes and I'm going to teach
those dragons...fly

Yes I'm going higher
higher, those dragons must be able
to fly me ever higher

Oh, yes those dragons will get me by-er
By-er...and I just need time, time to say
For your love I'll be the driver

If you be my love's care and provider
Then what the heck I say, throw me
Throw me kisses from here to the month of may

to the month of may...

The sun set on a crystal blue and orange spectacle in the sky
Only the purest colors were there to touch my eye

See that sun has set three hours earlier
On my love that is even more worthier

Than the best of your cold statue stare
I am so alone in there, everyone sees your love's in glare

Oh, is it time but I just got here
And now you say it's time for me
to go, ooooh

But there is no snow
and the shovel is broken anyway
You say, 'I know, but that not important anyway. '

'You must teach the dragon-fly. '

    Sounds like a stream of consciousness poem by someone who's feeling happy, hopeful and agitated at the same time. I won't try to understand - just enjoy the energy, flow and images. (Report) Reply

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
