The Tale Of A Werewolf

by nobody truly knows me   Mar 8, 2006

Light turns to shadows
As day turns to night
My presence is unknown
I must stay out of sight

I grow steadily weary
The time is drawing near
Slowly I am filled with dread
I start to shake with fear

I stumble to a room
Lock myself in tight
There's no way I can escape
There'll be no killings tonight

Suddenly the changes start
In agony I scream
This is way too much to bear
I wish this were a dream

The pain finally stops
I slowly rise to my feet
Power surges through my body
I'm a beast that knows no defeat

I race around the room
Frantically searching for a way out
Frustration grows inside me
Until I want to shout

A howl comes from my throat
I hurl myself at the door
I will not be trapped
I never have been before

The door splinters on impact
Joyously I howl
I jump through an open window
To begin my midnight prowl

I race through the woods
The full moon leading the way
The thirst for blood surges
I must find my prey

A smell drifts through the air
Unmistakably fresh
I run in that direction
Towards the scent of human flesh

Mad with desire
I fly through the night
I come to a camp
Killing everyone in sight

In the morning I awaken
In my human form once again
I realize I'm in the woods
And my head begins to swim

I take in my surroundings
Gasping at the sight
The ground is covered with blood
I shudder as I remember the night

Sorrow fills my body
Tears fall down my face
Knowing that I must leave
I vanish without a trace

    I love this poem. It really is like all those movies you see about werewolves. But those stories are foolish. Yours is great not like the others.
