In The Nightside Of Eden

by Gem   Nov 7, 2007

The clouds are gathering, marring the moon
Which glows in full, illuminating the room
He sits in the corner, clutching onto his chair
Feeling the bristles of his fast growing hair

A sharp sudden jolt makes his body jerk
As the moonlight shines, things go berserk
He lets out an agonized, blood curdling howl
That soon transforms into a blood thirsty growl

The chair is knocked over and broken in two
With a furious snarl, he smashes it through,
The window not caring if anyone hears
The werewolves arrived, it's what everyone fears

His matted fur is tangled and stained
With the blood of his victims he's already gained
Yellow teeth gleam in the misty moonlight
This time of the month is the werewolves night

His hungry black eyes darting out of control
This is the result of selling your soul
Nobody is safe whilst the moon is still full
In the night side of Eden, is the human race cull


*Cull - When something is killed off

    -I like it so much because it paints an intense picture and at the same time allows you FEEL what the problem is...I'm not sure if that makes much sense, lol. Anyways, it's incredible as always girl! Oh! And incredible title, immediately captures your attention! 5/5 of course! :)

    I liked this piece, as before, it was very well written. The wording was superb, as well as the rhymes and flow, blah, blah, you've heard it all before, lol. But the story and the words were what really made this piece great. I loved the first two lines of the last stanza, they were brillaintly written. I think my favorite stanza was the first one though.

    Wow great poem... it gave me the chills, it actually has more meaning than the warewolf stuff... it gives you an idea that is about all criminals in general... good job
