Man and the Dragon

I killed the dragon in her mind 
The fire still remains
Her thoughts they dance and agonize 
They fill her heart with pain

As we watched from inside love
We tossed the world aside
Burned the bridge that brought us 
Chased a beautiful lie

As time did change so did her eyes
Only ashes left from flame
Those gentle gems steal looks of sin
They whisper not my name
