Fear This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
The beast roars
and tears through the house,
roaming from room
to room.
Not a corner
is spared from its unearthly growl.
Its malice-filled eyes glow in determined
pursuit of its next meal.
I seek refuge
in my room
but hear the thing draw ever closer.
Terror freezes my limbs.
My thoughts churn –
I haven’t seen Paris!
I haven’t gotten my driver’s license!
I haven’t ridden in the Oscar Meyer
Weiner Mobile!
But then
I hear a whir
and the ominous snarling
fades.
I peek out just in time
to see Mom store the vacuum
away.

i agree with debbie1. how you consume the reader with descriptions of nightmare fears and then give them something entirely different is great. please can u check out some of my work?

Omg! This poem was beautiful! I loved the way you made the reader think one thing...only to find out it's something entirely different!
