When that dragon descended,
The heart went pumping,
The head sweating,
The body immobile,
The intellect not functioning.

The choice remained to defeat him,
Or get killed by,
The monster really dangerous,
And I,
A speak of flower,
Although I couldn’t gather courage,
To fight or to flight.

The darkness descends,
I can’t shout,
But I had to go home,
As the exam was near,
An the teacher more dangerous.

I said the dragon,
Please drop me home,
Or else I fail,
And when asked for reason,
I play the blame game,
And the teacher will punish you.

Oh beyond all measures,
He cried in fear,
And promised me,
To drop me dear.

Well as I came near,
To sit on its back,
Someone emerged,
From his mouth,
And ordered me,
To wake up buddy,
It’s too late to wonder,
And I found no thunder,
Because it’s only a dream,
Where the dragon arrived!

P.S: Thank you and deep gratitude for reading my poems. It’s a newly discovered talent in me, maybe not rhyming and good enough, but I found poetry is the best medium to express our emotions. And that’s the reason I started writing them, it frees up my mind, relaxes me, and the creative expression is deeply fulfilling. I mostly write with my feelings and experience, and not to fill the word limit, so have to include these lines in every poem as they are shorter than one one-fifty words to publish. Accept my gratitude (although I don’t have much).
