I wrote this poem when I was 14 years old. I thought posting it today (Halloween) would be the perfect time to share. Happy Halloween! Hope you enjoy!
Your Animal Side
I hear everyone has an animal side.
What is yours?
What is mine?
No one can really know for sure.
Could it be repulsive in the dark, silent night?
Save me from this frightening thought.
I saw a creature enter my room last night.
Could it be what I think?
This is not a story because I saw it.
As horrifying as it is, I believe I saw your animal side.
It’s not ordinary.
Do you want to know what it is?
I saw a big shadow on the wall.
The eyes were blood red in the mirror.
I saw gruesome fangs.
The creature howled at the round moon
And tore into my soft, clean flesh.
I fought back, teeth sharp and hungry
Our animal side has gotten the better of us.
