Smoke Alarm.
Smoke, everywhere, my lungs fill as I awaken from sleep and smell burning

Smoke stings my eyes there is danger about as my senses are learning

No light can I see all around me is encompassed in black

I grope my way from my bed but stumble and fall back

Again as I rise I now slide to the floor

It is now that I see the orange glow under the door

My escape now is urgent But no windows have I

Panic now heightens for the stairs I must try

With my hand on the handle of the door to my room

I open, but all in my bedroom the fire will now consume.
Author's Notes:
How healthy is your smoke alarm??
