Girl and her dragon growing up and growing old together and stuff. ( I picture dragons having very long lives so it would suck making human friends OTL ) It started as just the first pic but then I wanted to draw the dragon after it hatched and then it just continued from then on…
I am sure its by no means an original concept so I’m gonna add mine to the pile of mythical creature friendships :)
I’m having a horrible artblock so I’m just finishing up doodles I did at work over 4-5 months ago or something OTL
I broke shell in your hands, as red as a poppy;
your love was a jewel,
your hair the first and only gold
I ever hoarded.
In winter, I grew to serpentine loops
in your warm arms;
you held me like coils of priceless silk
and told me our secret name
later, we basked in the sun
by a sea so immesureably old
I forgot to notice that you, too, were ageing.
you taught me to fly with paper wings.
like a stringed kite, you were tethered
to an earth I only learned to leave
because your love bore me up
like a soaring thermal.
the first time your heart broke,
I held you close and wondered how it would feel,
when you broke mine.
years later, when your hair turned white as eggs.
I carried you
as you once carried me, your bones as fragile
as the shell I’d long outgrown -
and now you’re gone.
I cannot call you back.
I guard the earth that tethers you
and hope you’ll wait, my darling -
'till I am done.
