Desecration

It was thinking 
you could erase me, 
that made you fall
into your first mistake 

I am a mother of poems
I am the sister to word,
the daughter of a great 
I am an untold story

without a name 
all calls absorb silence,
but a slip of thought
will redeem all 

you think me simple
something to toy with,
when other distractions
pale into insignificance 

a sleeping dragon
rests in the cave
of my heart, wisps
of smoke consume me 

like a rain of fire
my words will spill, 
to burn your eyes
and all they mirror
