A wooden wall stares back at me,
and lurking in it's depths I see-
a dragon pulling on his chain,
a dragon one cannot restrain.
A lamp glows softly,cautiously,
and mirrored in it's light I see-
a dragon writhing in great pain,
a dragon one cannot detain.
A curtain ripples lazily,
and in it's languid folds I see-
a dragon pulling on his rein,
a dragon none has ever slain.
I raise my cold hand nervously,
but close my eyes when I first see-
a dragon one cannot contain,
whose eyes conceal an awful bane.
