The Pack...A werewolf poem

The mist covers the forest swirling

Through the trees they run

Their eyes glowing and teeth flashing

They won’t stop until the hunt is done

 

Paws striking the earth as the moon glows

The pack moves as a single force

The prey tonight just to slow

As nature takes it course

 

As one mind they attack

Dragging the vampire to the ground

The un-dead demon turning to face the pack

As the wolves circle around

 

With a roar they surge forward

Their bodies changing, fuelled with rage

Natures warriors forever altered

Impossible to stop or cage

 

Summoning dark power, the vampire lashes out

His magic slamming hard and fast

His denial loud in every shout

Knocking wolves back with every blast

 

 

But with no friend at his back

The un -dead was fighting a losing battle

As he faced the relentless were-wolf pack

His face twisted and hateful

 

As his cold flesh was ripped apart

The claws and jaws tearing

Destroying his demonic heart

The wolves’ voices high and howling


The moon hangs low above the trees

As the pack moves away running

Ever vigilant as natures sentries

Always hunting

I am so thrilled that my werewolf poems got you writing!

If only I could turn all that overflowing inspiration my way for a little while, as I try and work on a new short story :)

I am very glad that you liked it, and look forward to reading your take very soon

NH-C-O-O-L poem. I visualized it so well-you paint quite a picture with your words. My granddaughter LOVES wolves. (wolves, not werewolves, LOL)

thanks so much I am thrilled that you liked it, even if it was about werewolves and not their more natural cousins the wolf.

Thanks heaps for a great comment

I really enjoyed the poem. I enjoy the mythology of both werewolves and vampires. I hope it wasn't inspired by the twilight series. If it is I am sorry, I think it is a good teenie-bopper movie but it did ruin the mythology a bit. Plus a 101 year old man and 16 year old girl sounds more like a Hugh Hefner thing...LOL...jk

lol, no as much as i can appreciate twilight for the safe teenage vampire flick it is, I have loved paranormal / horror for too long to let Twilight influence my writing a great deal. (tempting as it is)

I am glad you liked this, vampires and werewolves have been a long love of mine as well so its always nice to meet another fan, especially one as talented as you

Good, kill the vampire. I'll root for the wolves every time. Vampires have had too much fun in the sun (wink) recently and it's time they got taken down a notch or two. Long live the pack!

Doug, I totally agree, Vampires are at the height of their popularity at the moment, But there are other beast's of the night ready to take them of their pedestal.

So glad you liked this one :)

I am printing this out and sending it to my sister. (believe it or not, she doesn't own a computer)...she just loves wolves and will enjoy your magnificent poem.

Through your poem, I could visualize every detail and feel each emotion. I continue to learn from you with every spectacular hub you create. Thank you, my friend and thank you for your recent beautiful comments on my hub (the heart of a child).

Wow I am so flattered and really hope that your sister enjoys it as much as you think she might...

I really wanted this poem to be visual so to think that I may have achieved that is a wonderful thing to hear thank you so very much for not only taking the time to read my work but to leave such flattering comments is enough to have me blushing for the rest of the day.

I really like this poem. The only horror movies I like to watch are the ones with vampires and werewolves, so this poem was dark and captivating to me. Good Job!
