Lost...A Werewolf Poem

Updated on July 24, 2011

The glass is shattered and there is blood staining the sheets

Her scream echoes out mournfully through the empty streets

There is none left to hear her devastated cries

As she struggles to believe the sight before her eyes

Sobs racking her body her lips spilling her denial

The massive wounds down his body bloody and fatal

Slipping in the blood she pulls him to her arms

Far too late to keep him safe from harm

Unable to breath she feels herself start to sink

Struggling against a madness rising she tries to think

Holding him tight to her naked breast she rocks to and fro

Her mind filling with images she doesn’t want to know

The heat had been overwhelming burning her skin

As she had struggled to contain the fierce evil within

It had beat against every part of her demanding its release

From its power she could find no peace

As the new moon rose, the chains didn’t hold at all

As she was gripped by the curse, lost to the beast call

Holding him close locked in the never ending nightmare

Memories assaulting her mind, her sins open and bare

The beast had wanted to hunt and kill

To feed on fresh flesh, to feel warm blood spill

Cursed half woman half wolf she had hunted

Its lust and desire to kill refusing to ever be stated

The screams and cries had only fed it’s…her rage

There was nothing that stopped the bloody rampage

Terrified faces of neighbours and friends filling her vision

Their bodies dropping behind her, torn and broken

The glass had shattered around her, his beloved face fearful

Holding his hands out to her, he had been so hopeful

But without thought or care she had torn him apart

Her clawed hands, pulling out his fear filled heart

The blood dripping down the walls all around

As in the distance the sirens started to sound

Smoothing back his hair she gently kissed his face

Wishing with everything she had that she could take his place

She didn’t move as the door was kicked in

Covered in the blood of her victims she wanted to pay for her sins

Filling the room their voices carrying their horror at the sight

Naked and bloody she didn’t wish to fight

Looking up through her gore filled hair

Fear filling them as they met her inhuman stare

The sound of their pounding hearts filled her head

They didn’t know it yet, but they would be the ones to shoot her dead

The beast roared its denial deep inside

As she slowly stood with nowhere to hide

Ignoring the guns raised high, their warnings to stay still

She knew she had to make them ready to kill

She couldn’t be captured or they would all die

Desperation filling her, she attacks with a heartbreaking cry

The bullets striking her slender frame

Her arms open as she fell, waiting for death to claim

But as her blood spills across the floor

The beast comes to life with a terrible roar

The fur covering her contorting body

As the fresh bullets pumped into her making the beast more angry

Lost to the curse in the light of the midday sun

The werewolf didn’t even think to run

As it leapt tooth and claw ripping

Through flesh and bone savouring the screaming

Her soul breaking in its triumphant howl

She was nothing more than a monster foul

Her father had been right all along

Amongst humans she would never belong

The glass was shattered and the blood stained the walls

As the wolf raced towards the distant sound of her father’s call

The dream that had become nightmare fading behind her

No longer willing to be the girl, she was now only the monster…

      its been a busy time here in Australia with my family at the moment, so I am finding it hard to find the time I once had to write and enjoy the community here at hubpages, but all it takes is one such comment from you dear sir and I immediately get excited again.

      Stephen king and Edgar Allan Poe ...really sir you are far too kind but I have to admit I love it! :)

      I have to admit I am having a lot of fun picturing you as a hairy werewolf :) SO glad to know that you enjoyed this poem of mine to revisit, that its the greatest compliment given by my Favorite poet....

      sending you love and heart felt thanks..

      How is my favorite horror writer/poet? You could make Stephen King hide underneath the bed with the way you write? And Edgar Allan Poe pee his pants in fear? And of course, the Epi -man now sleeps with the lights on, lol. Back to revisit a classic and one that made me want to keep shaving after three days growth of a beard and to also avoid the full moon - sending you my most sincere warmest wishes and good energy from lake erie time ontario canada 10:33pm from Colin and his cats, Tiffy and Gabriel.

      Thank you so much! THis poem took weeks to craft and even when it was finally finished I was filled with doubt about if I had achieved what I had orginally envisioned, which can be so hard to do when we are our worst critics.

      I guess thats why your very complimentry words have surprised and humbled me, I am thrilled that you liked this and am looking forward to reading your work as well

      Just wonderful Night'...

      Like Mary Shelly, you've beautifully humanized the inhuman.

      What a wonderful, vivid read..

      Of course, I like your poetic structure. This is exactly what I want of my work... to tell a poetic, rhythmic, yet deep and substantive version of a story, but not only to do that but push the bounds of storytelling, not only in our writing here, but in my plays and productions as well...

      Thank you so much...I expect to continue to learn much more from you, my friend...
