Moons call...A werewolf poem

Updated on December 13, 2012


The beat of my heart fills my ears

as the glowing moon seems to leer


The stars shine an audience bright

As I try to out race the moon filled night


My skin burning yet still I run

Forever looking for the safety of the sun


A cry escapes my lips as I scream

The agony proving it is no dream


 

 

My skin splits apart

As the beast claims my heart

 

Fur and blood fly

A howl replacing my terrified cry

 

The beat of my heart pounds in my ears

As the beast consumes my tears

 

The trees move by at incredible speed

As I am filled with bloody need

My true self lost in the thrill

As I hunt consumed with this desire to kill

 

Bathed in the moons glow

Through the ancient woods I flow

 

Alive for the first time truly

A predator lethal and deadly

 

Unable to ignore the enticing sound

Of the animals frantic heart pound

 

Trapped, held by the claws of my feet

 As I feed on the raw bloody meat

 

No longer fearful of the dark around me

Hearing the nights call full of surreal beauty

 

I am one with all

As my howl echoes out answering the moons call

      The wonder of lore and legend is that it often makes me wonder what bit of fact started the myths, to me the idea of it all being true would be a bit of a scary wish come true, but until I know for sure I must write from how how I feel the struggle of such a life would be,

      I do hope that you enjoyed this poems,

      Be careful what you write because you never know the power of these words.... never judge a man until you've walked two moons in his moccasins

      Wow! I love the transition from fear to power, and how the initial reluctance to transform isn't simply replaced with acceptance but with a whole-hearted embrace. This was great!

      I like your poem. I live in Limousin and the area is rich in were wolf stories and legends. I wrote a Hub about it as alter ego Les Trois Chenes and your were wolf and vampire stories will make great links.

      I really like this one. The beginning of the new life would be scary as all hell the terror of unknowing, like you said though instinct would take charge. 10/10 for grabbing the moment as your own.

      Just seeing that you have commented again brings a smile to my face, and then I read your wonderfully kind words and I am blown away.

      I write what I love, which is paranormal/horror, To simply have it read is a thrill but to know that it may have inspired a poet such as yourself is a compliment I will always treasure.

      Will check out the song and keep my eye out for your take on the werewolf theme!

      ...well you have created a poetic horror niche all of your own in which I am proud to say - and you have inspired the ep-man to invent a new vampire piece - so thanks to you for your divine inspiration - and yes I should come up with a werewolf theme of my own!!!!

      By the way my favorite werewolf song - Werewolves Of London by the late great Warren Zevon!!!!

      This is a very deep observation. You are not what people see on the outside and you wait for the moon to rise when you can become the person you really are. Be it werewolf or alter ego, Bravissima, amore.
