The Transfiguration

As the beast that lurks within grazes the walls of her heart

Waiting, pouncing in the shadows tearing her soul apart

With the moon shining on her fragile body tainted with sorrow

The instinct to kill echoes down her bone marrow

Trapped under the moonlight she awakens staring into a face she doesn’t recognize

In the world of raging primal fear, she learned to hate and despise,

On full moon nights she learned to scorn the image reflected by the river

For before the transfiguration surfaces the burning deceitful fever

As the wars rage within, her shivering hand coves her face

Yet the beast’s fangs dig deep into her flesh demanding to surface

She claims him a beast, a curse that taints her existence

Yet he replies that there’s no point in resistance

And as the blood pumps like a drum in her ears,

Asserting her deadliest fears,

He demands his rightful passage

He demands his bondage

His thoughts pour into her head, violating her peace of mind

She can no more restrain it within her, or hide,

The wolf’s desires, that echo in her mind

About the human prey it wishes to find

The beast snarls taking control over her body

While bones arch and crack will somebody

Help the fragile girl from a nightmare that has come true

As the treacherous moon casts its hue?

Scratching, howling, with bones shattering

Breaking the barriers, emotions raging

Demanding blood, the beast howls from within

Flesh shedding, breaking and ripping

Then comes the heat that taints the skin and the soul

Manifests within the frenzy that scorches all

The animalistic nature that calls from within

Finally, the demon surfaces, awakening

Hear my voice and awaken

Shatter the soul that must be taken

This is so breath taking, please allow me some time to sink it all in. I am in such awe how you can make the reader feel like they are right there, watching her, smelling the fear...

i like the first one better, its more your style, more anime-like, and more fierce. the second one has kind eyes and its pretty too but i think the first one fits better. really nice work. i like what you did here.

Hey stranger, I know the feeling, I liked the the white one with the yellow eyes, seems more feminine like the character, deceptive yet inviting at the same time.

how's the college life going?

Nikki thanks for the comment, i finally have access to hubpages among the mess i call college life :D:D Glad you liked it :D and i kind of support you when it comes to the face of the second picture:D, btw the pic is from an anime called wolf's rain, hadn't checked it out yet but they say it is nice!

Jenubouka: hmm sounds like you really saw into the pic really well :D:D glad you liked it [everybody seems to like the first pic :D ]

COLLEGE?? God it has me by the neck, the ear, and the nose. And if that isn't enough it has me by the pony tail :| I will try to hang in their, my junior courses are sounding interesting but fingers crossed they will go smoothly :D How's life on your side of the globe?

Hang in there, you know its almost over when the books start hitting back.

Eh, hitting a cross road with the whole hubpage, writing on line thing. I have notice a trend throughout the site. Like a click or something, that's what I was trying to avoid.

Most likely will fish out my chef gear along with my blade collection and hit the food path once again.

Varg, always supportive :| i really appreciate the faith :D:D

Jenubouka :D I have lived through my first week so i am hoping i will survive the year :D I feel positive regarding my courses yet the first week was simply depleting :D I guess i will have to get used to it. :D I am not complaining, yet it is some kind of quick transition from summer to university life again.

As for your hubpage account well i would like to read some fiction to see what it may convey about your character or even how deep you can go into developing the characters :D:D I think it is really nice that you have a diverse interest when it comes to writing [poetry and cooking]. I would also like to see more of your chef qualities! [we lebanese love to eat LOL]

Yea I am working on both, I could seriously write a min of 100 recipes off my head, I probably have over 10,000, in my archives

As for my fiction, it goes pretty black, pretty dark, i think i have may a few readers' skin crawl, which is exactly what I am aiming for.

I don't envy you when it comes to school, my mind could not sit still long enough, I would stay just long enough to get the assignment and attendance credit and jam. So I admire you for having patience.

PS I added Shiro to my hub, your write it does go, and i just found my new favorite artist.
