Tonight, the moon is stealing softly through the sky.

Full and palely glowing, displeasing to my eye.

I know what will happen, through natureís cruel demand

Itís three nights since it bit, through the soft flesh of my hand.

A dull pain has started, somewhere in my chest,

I know now that tonight, I will have no rest.


Teeth lengthen, becoming fangs, nails become claws

Ears and nose more sensitive, but the pain still does not pause

My backbone twists, cracks, changes, splits

My pupils narrow gradually into feral slits.

What were howls of pain, have now turned to delight

The door crumples like paper as I begin my flight.


As I gallop in the shadows, I wonder why I was afraid

For I am now free, my dues all duly paid.

My only love, the moon, is now drifting with no sound,

As my feet find firm footing even on the night time ground

No silver bullet will find me; I am too free, too wild.

As soundless as the moon, liberated as a child.

wow!!! this piece is so realistic and beautiful! you don't even tell the reader what it is but they know exactly what your are talking about without you going *cough* werewolf *cough*!!!!

Though here is a question, cos I am stupid... is feral just feline and if so can it be applied to a wereWOLF, but i have a feeling that you are right and it means wild eyes, but thought i'd ask to see if you could enlightene me! (btw i have now commented on all your poetry and it s all inspired and lovely, keep writing and then you can publish a book just for me to buy and read!!! 12 )

1 Kirsty 'Chibs' Morrison replies: "Aaaw thanku! If I get published I'll tell ya lol. Feral just means 'wild'. Coz u can have feral cats n feral dogs etc so just wild. What a handy thing Microsoft Word's inbuilt thesauras is!lol. I'm glad u commented on this too coz its another one I reely like but no one has commented on!#sniff#"

Very deep, i luved it, you should show it to someone in a library or something and ask if thay wil show it around the library.

i like the wolfs, thay can be fierce and peaceful.

Awesome! I LOVE IT!!! Werewolves are my favorite 'monsters.' I'm actually writing a story about werewolves not being evil, just misunderstood. I commend thee on thine beautiful peice of prose *does a big sweeping bow*

1 Kirsty 'Chibs' Morrison replies: "Why thank you...uh...yey verily ;P #returns sweeping bow# This is actually a personal fav of mine so I'm always happy when it gets commented on. Aren't werewolves great?^^ Anyhoo ta for the comment and Merry Xmas!"

*raises hand timidly* Umm... I have a question. Is the werewolf in control of themself? And, I mean like, they can make their body do what they want to? Cause in this one, it seems like their in control. I like that. Best kind of werewolf there is.(didn’t mean to offend if you’re a werewolf and NOT in control. You are cool to.) 2
