I Shift

I look up at the full moon
It glares back balefully
It's cold hypnotic gaze
Holds me in its thrall
Unable to look away
Unable to disobey
It commands me once again
To shift…

I throw back my head and howl
Joining the other "Children of the Night"
I writhe in the agony of my change
Canines growing
Eyes on fire
Limbs contorting
My face, so dire
I shift…

I run, the pack runs with me
Muscles rejoice to sing
The hunt is on
I smell the fear
I see wide eyes
I taste the blood
I tear the flesh
I shift…

The moon sinks low
And out of sight
Its spell is lifted off me
The sweetness of blood
Now makes me wretch
My cloak departs
Leaves me naked
I shift…
Can you guess what I am? :iconwerewolfplz:

“Even a man who is pure of heart, and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms, and the autumn moon is bright.”

Watched the full moon while driving home tonight, and this poem came to me. Thought I would share it.

Happy Halloween! :iconhalloweenplz:

Though it looks like a jack-o-lantern/skull more than a werewolf, this looks REALLY cool!

its not a werewolf at all, it is a balrog, but I thought it was the best picture I had for the occasion..

Oh. I knew that...Nonetheless, it looks pretty freakin' cool.
I've heard of many of obscure monsters, but not a balrog...well, google was created for a reason...
