A Dragon's Tale - A Tragic Love Poem

Once there was a Dragon
who fell in love with a beautiful girl,
His heart wanted her so badly
his whole life was in a whirl.

Dragon, he was smitten
but she was courting another man,
He knew he needed her for himself,
it was more than he could stand.

He desired this princess so much
his jealousy sparked a rage
So he captured his fair maiden
and put her in a cage.

Even though she was his captive
she fell in love with him anyway,
Even without the old iron cage
with Dragon she wanted to stay.

So he finally opened up her cage
and let her roam the woodlands free
The knight, who also loved her
just refused to let her be.

He searched until he found her
not far from Dragon's cave
Threat to life or limb didn't frighten him
the princess he thought he'd save.

Dragon swooped down as the two talked,
he was a majestic and fearsome sight
A battle between the two ensued
it was a brutal, bloody fight.

The knight thought he was the victor,
he thought he had come out ahead;
But the Princess could never love him now
cause like Dragon, her heart was dead.
