Kill Me, Kill You

Douse my flames
Smother me
Till I am not even a glowing ember
Throw your dagger
Aim at my heart
The moon will howl
The stars darken
The sun will cease to rise
Who is the dragon
That you slay
But your mere reflection

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    We certainly do have internal dragons we must manage, slay if we are lucky Mary.
