The Dragon Reborn
28 August, 2006
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


Dragon's Breath...
I can smell it upon the breeze
Could it be, that again, it breathes life
And soon it will rear it's evil head.

I wish I was wrong
That it appearance would be stayed
But I fear the inevitable
To live walking on eggshells again

The peace that has been so familiar
Is it soon to be only a memory
Of something I can only dream of
Was the peace only a facade

The scent familiar as the rose
A stench of ugliness and evil
Will I be strong enough
To again... face the dragon

reminded me of

The words "Dragon's Breath..." reminded me of a story (forgot what it was called). But it so phenomenal yet real which makes this poem a classic! It makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck! Freaky good!

different take

I know I'm probably reading into this from my past experince I guess. To me the Dragon is a boyfriend or mate and the peace is about when there is no violence. walking on eggshells to prevent a temper spell. I bet alot of woman will read this and think of the DRAGON as their mate.

Close Barb....

The dragon is the violence and anger of mental illness of a family member. You have the peace and the egg shells right.

a hunch

reminds me of heroin, the ultimate evil, so good that you're afraid to be weak. without you its powerless, don't listen to any guilt, turn and run, the further you go the stronger you become. live what you dream and dream forever

So Many things

It's interesting that the dragon can be different things for different people. But still effect them the same. I like reading the poem again from the perspective of the person who got some other meaning from the writing and seeing their point of view. Thanks for a different interpretation of my my poem blastard and Barb.. It is good to know that people are reading my work and finding a meaning unique to them. :)
