Conjuring Identity

Ciruelo Cabral - Unknown - A black dragon writing at a podium

Conjuring Identity 

i fancy myself alive;
then, again i declare myself dead,
i tickle myself awake,
and wring myself asleep,
i clasp to things of old,
drain myself of new,
lick my wounds myself,
continually seek some truth –

i cling to mouths of dragons,
who write out my dreams,
and i cause my crows to shutter,
when i melt off into unconscious,
i dwell, as a buoy;
in the center of icebergs,
but, drizzle in fiery flames,
my toe nails annoy –
dried clusters of earth,
from burrowing in the ground;
playing hide-n-seek with tree roots,
{connecting as One}
i found my wings dripping with sky dew,
a flight breaking sound –

i fancy myself a nothing,
but an everything in between,
my night terrors keep me smitten,
on a world less traveled,
my daydreams are manifested,
by the pen of my Dragon –
safely collected in his annuels,
until i am alive;
or am i dead?
rationally speaking,
all of the above!

    An amazing read, you had me since the first two lines completely captivated allready.

    • Yes, Greg! Dragons! I was actually inspired by another dragon image for this one, but I felt like that image needed more of a story so when this poem finally came out I found another image equally awesome. 🙂

    I love Dragons! But this is not the only reason why I love this piece. 🙂
    “i cling to mouths of dragons, / who write out my dreams, / and i cause my crows to shutter, / when i melt off into unconscious,” <– What an amazing part that is! You've got talent, my friend.

  3. I am amazed at the brilliance of your mind — how your thoughts have manifested into one marvelous piece here is simply exquisite! It has been a while since I have visited, and such a pleasure to find your ‘world’ wonderful than ever before.

    • Thank you so much Silent Fingers! I am so happy to see you. I somehow lost track of your blog. I am following now so I will not miss your words. 🙂 I truly find delight in your poems!
