Call of the Lycanthrope©
Age Group: Adult
Burning brightly in the night
Full of heavenly beauty
Full of delight
I rejoice in its touch upon my skin
And feel its power upon my face
My heart now beats faintly again
My blood boils and pulses at rapid pace
The primal urge is awakened
The beast within stirs
The desire to roam with my kin
In my mind, this occurs
My skin begins to tingle
As if electrified
The hair on my body stand up
As if the air upon it is rarified
Now comes the basso drum of my heart
Beating so hard within my chest
My veins jut outwards
On my head, almost forming a crest
My bones crack and break
Becoming thicker and longer
Pain of this is welcome
For I am becoming stronger
The hair upon my body, once fine and short
Now grows long and coarse, in the moonlit night
My nails once short and dull
Stretch and thicken, becoming claws of might
My head and face
Once aquiline and refined
Stretches and convulses
Into a dream , and nightmare, combined
My teeth, once short and dull
Now fill my maw
With thick, razor-sharp, knives
And a crushing jaw
With the weakness of the human gone
My increased senses take over
I can see, hear, and smell
All of my kindred and prey, as surely as a bed of clover
With my soul, now encased within the beast
Sleeps for now, naught with fright
I feel the Moon’s supernatural pull
And see it in my wolf eyes, giving me rapturous might
I pay homage to the light
And fill my chest with breath of cool air
And from my throat comes the sound
The Lycanthrope’s freedom of man,
which it can never ensnare
Author's Notes: I wrote this today, 8-2-2006.
I hope that it will be, to some, good.
To others, maybe not-so-good
I have been published in several books and readers, but I haven't written anything new, until now. I hope my abilities have not waned in the past 4 years.
I hope that you, the reader, will enjoy what has been written.
