Tower of Doom

I'm a caregiver and an artist. I received high honors in creative writing, fine arts, and sculpture at Montserrat College of Art.

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.
