I'm a caregiver and an artist. I received high honors in creative writing, fine arts, and sculpture at Montserrat College of Art.
Creature of Doom Tower
Tower of Doom
I crept upon the tower of doom. Unsure what is within the room.
Not knowing what torment awaits me. I fear the creature I may see.
Yet up the spiral staircase, I reach the highest of peaks. I sense something scary and enormous that I hope to seek.
At the top of the steps is a steel cold door. So abundant that it reaches from ceiling to floor.
A massive heavy lock keeps it shut tight. The hallway is lit with only dim candlelight.
I grip the handle of my glimmering blade. Broke open the lock, on the floor then it laid.
A creature there stands the most startling sight. I'm there with my sword ready for a fight.
As the fear and the threat looks upon me. I'm frightened by the sight that I see.
The beast raises about with claws ejected. Not knowing if my forgiveness is rejected.
His teeth large and sprawled out. So dismayed I started to pout.
He gave me a look with such despair. For a beast so monstrous is rare.
I gently reached in. His head quickly did a spin.
He grabbed me with a mighty smack. Quickly he tossed me on his lumpy back.
Ran right out the stair filled tower. I felt like I had all the power.
Riding on this beast into the night. Colors deep in majestic purple light.
And the clouds hazed over the moon.
