The Dragon Queen This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
Her mane of hair flows gracefully
Down from her frozen scalp.
Her ice-cold eyes shine vividly
As they chip us down to pulp.

Her diamond teeth all glitter from
The inside of her maw.
She smiles wildly to see you
Squirm beneath her silver paw.

And as her beaded tail whips out so
She can hold me from afar
We both begin to thrash about
So we won’t become the martyrs.

We have crossed the Blue Bright Lady
Who stole the golden throne.
She snatches you up in bejeweled jaws
And leaves nothing but your bones.

Her steely gaze now turns on me
And I melt beneath her stare.
I know I’ll die quite painfully
As she holds me in the air.

We tried to win! We really did
And I swear we haven’t failed
I know the real Queen’s coming home
Then that Dragon will turn pale.

Yeah, you heard me, she’ll set you straight
Then you’ll be gone for good
When our Angel takes your place above
And you’re dead beneath the woods.

But Dragon Queen, you vengeful witch
Ruler of ice and snow,
How calm you sit upon the throne
As my Wonderland burns below.

Good stuff. I liked the subject and idea but it didn't feel perfect. Since I can't put my finger on it, I'll give it 5 stars.
