You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension - a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into the Twilight Zone.

I glare at the scantron.
Sweat streaks down from my brow
And blistering rage stabs its knife
Through my confidence.
The beast confined in my heart roars.
As my mind’s magma chamber
Empties rage.

This is the second poem in the Test trilogy because it takes places where Stress left off and it depicts the speaker failing the test mentioned in Stress. Hope, concludes the Test trilogy and I promise that he would be coming up soon. Anyway please comment on my work? I want to hear other people's opinions on what they think about my writing. So please, please comment!
