I am not all I seem to be
Come closer and look
Tell me
What do you see?

Fire becomes
The air that I breathe
No longer human
I fight to sheathe

The changeling inside me
This indelicate being
Who has taken my soul
Forever unfreeing

Locked deep within
My heart now a flame
This battle she’s won
I can no longer reclaim

The life I once lived
No place, no name
The dragon has spoken
I’m the end of her game
