Monster

I realized the monster I was scared of
That was inevitably beating on my door
Had its eye and grip on me
Breathed smoke and fire
Hurled great hailstones from its very fist
Shook the ground with its walk
Jiggled with an intimidating laugh
And squared itself for the kick
Had completely missed me
Crashed all mighty like King Kong
Hurtling to the earth like thunder
Shattering to pieces like glass
Or glitter
I couldn't tell
The remnants were so tiny
I ran it over my fingers
To examne the thing which held my breath
Before I realized what I feared was no threat
