Ode to a Werewolf

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

A lone girl had wandered Far from her lair Dressed as a princess With bows in her hair Adorned with a wolf tail And ears like a cat Exiled from life Like no more than a rat A full moon was rising Her eyes looked with fright She knew they would chase her And the ropes would be tight So off she did gallop Away from her home She knew she would miss it But she was better off alone The anger in humans Not one she did share The will to destroy her The peasents did dare The torch light was painful A light in the wood They followed her footprints Her speed did no good She tripped on a sapling And climbed in the brush I don't think they'll smell me She thought in a rush Their noise then grew louder Gaining in on the race They knew they would have her And soon find her place What could they do then? The girl thought with doubt They'd choke me and bind me I couldn't get out Then fear struck her body As she fought for her life A choke hold had grabbed her With cold bitter strife. A pull into darkness He forced on a whim A bite into danger She did spend with him A torch light flew past her And she knew she was saved This man had stood watching Ill act he had made She then turned to thank him But strong he did hold 'They will come to kill us' Was what she was told But then she did hear it A growl in his voice An inhuman trait That had brought her rejoice Alone was she not now Despite her sure death A flame she would kindle Until her last breath But they never found them Though all night they wait The brush did disguise them Enough to debate Now then he turned her A smile in his eyes For they were not human They both realized A run from the cities Escape from the town A home they may not have But neither a frown The lone girl had wandered far from her lair But only to find him A love she found there (January 11th 2005)
