"But there's a hope waiting for you in the dark, you should know you're beautiful just the way you are. And you don't have to change a thing the world could change its heart. No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful." - Alessia

Terror is the color of blue plastic seats
and sounds like nails against a chalkboard
it’s the taste of lead that petrifies your soul.
It smells like the heat and sweat of a boy
and looks like an anxiety attack,
it makes me feel traumatized.

Terror has the color red written all over it,
the screeching breaks from a voice and
the ringing of a bell.
Terror resembles the taste of week old food: bitter.
It surrounds you like the smell of an Axe bomb.
The sight of a dark figure panicking in a corner,
it makes me feel insane.

Terror is the silver that reflects off a knife.
It sounds like the frantic sputter of feet
it tastes like salty tears, and smells like rain.
It looks like a child’s first nightmare,
It makes me feel lost and empty.

Terror is like a thirst that can’t be quenched.

The author's comments:

This poem is a 5 Senses poem. In my language arts class we were analyzing poems, then he had us write a 5 senses poem about an emotion. I decided to do terror.  I made it sound like I was describing school as a terror, but in reality I love school. I just thought it would be fun.
