The Lure of the Beast

Each night he stares up at the moon and watches as it peeks. Through many wispy, floating clouds as both play hide and seek. His human heart tormented by the demon in his soul. A part of him fights to break free, the other to be whole. Soon the man will be transformed and he will roam the night. No longer can he fight the urge, his will too weak to fight. Although he wants so desperately to quell the beast within. Temptation always dominates and he succumbs to sin. The lure to be a savage beast is burning in his blood. So strong are the emotions like a raging, river flood. The man has given in and now until the morning sun. The two parts run together, man and monster joined as one.

    Samia, My Wolf Man "contest," aka group work in progress, is not about a werewolf. It's about a man who adapts his life to co exist with a pack of wild wolves alone in the wilderness. Hence, The Wolf Man, but I'd enter this write of yours in my contest anyway. I can see where I could insert this to be part of the full final story. For example, Go here after reading your above magnificent piece again > http://www.poetrysoup.com/poems_poets/poem_detail.aspx?ID=384466

    Hi SillyBilly, Thank you very much for clarifying. I should have read your instructions more carefully. I guess that's what happens when you have werewolves on the mind! LOL I will definitely place it in your contest. Thank you very much. :)

    Hello Rockman, Thank you very much. I really appreciate your comment as werewolves are probably my favorite subject. I will definitely read your 'Wolf Story.' :)

    Hey tihis is the best poem in this winner circle. The meter is perfection. I read it aloud twice to see if I could find anything wrong and I couldn't. Congratulations on a great one. Love, Joyce
