Full MoonPale light brightens the beaten path
Taken so many times in the past
Where one set of paws crush the leaves
Marking this land his territory, his home
Now the monthly run has come
Wolf is jumping out of the skin
A suit made of flesh and human bone
Wolf is ready to run on this full moon night
It always starts with a subtle itch
But leads to a burn, a passion of fire
Bright enough to melt and reshape
The bones and humanity of his form
Claws sprout from rounded fingernails
Ears stretch and perk straight up
As a long and profound muzzle appears
Slowly being covered in light brown fur
A groan of pain slips from his lupine formed maw
As his transformation makes its completion
Yellow amber eyes, a black leather nose
A bushy brown tail and hard padded paws
Again he was whole, wild, ready to be free
Wolf WithinWatching from the shadows,Wolf Within8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I see the world for what it truly is.
The pain, the suffering,
And even the malice that fills the void.
I don't understand how my human,
How my other half, can stand them.
With their selfish wants,
And their furless bodies,
It amazes me how he can walk among them,
And not quiver at their strangeness.
But maybe it's me who's strange…
The one who might not fit.
I hide in the fabric of his soul,
Forever watching the world,
And waiting for another who is just like us,
Another who can understand…
Though my time does get lonely,
I often enjoy giving my human things,
That remind him of what he truly is,
Something that few can ever obtain.
I give him my own sight.
I let him run through the trees,
And let him feel the wind through my fur,
I even give him the thrill of chasing a deer.
Though these are mere illusions,
They are still as strong as the day I saw them,
Through my two golden orbs.
And one day soon,
One day very soon…
I hope that he and I can s

And that reflect the moon's glow.

With all my forms,

With one heart,
I am the wolf.
Werewolf PleaOh great motherWerewolf Plea7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Night be your brother
Hear my plea
Make a wolf of me!
Grant me paws
Sharp talons and claws
Grant me a pelt
Only the sun can melt
Grant me fangs
Pointed that hang
Grant me eyes
Sharp that cut through lies
Grant me a howl
A powerful growl
Grant me a tail
One that will not fail
Heres where I stand
Over this great land
Wild and free
This is my true destiny
Wolfen SoulI have never wanted to howl,Wolfen Soul8 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
So badly as I do now.
I can feel the tightening in my chest,
My maw raising toward the sky,
Flattening my ears,
And singing to the moon
To my brothers and sisters,
To my soul that lives out in the forest.
All of it.
I want to drink in the air,
As it swirls around me,
I want to growl, play and bark,
At my pack who live around me.
I just want to be freed,
Of this retched life.
I want to wag my tail
And feel the soil between my paws.
Most of all, I want to howl,
I want to sing my soul for all to hear.
I just want to be free,
To be free in the wild.
Yet I am forced to hold back the feeling.
The tears welling up in my eyes,
Slowly fall down my muzzle.
I dont know if Im happy or sad,
But now I can feel myself calming down.
The feeling has been released for now,
But until it happens again, I will howl for you,
And the life that awaits in the deep green forests,
Of my heart and soul.
*flattens ears and howls*
RunCan you feel it,Run8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That strange tingling sensation?
It starts in your paws,
And climbs through your body,
Like a bird soaring through the sky.
This energy, this feeling,
What does it beckon you to do?
Play? Howl? Or even fight?
No its something different
It urges you to run.
Run through the trees,
The flowers and the streams.
Let the crisp cool wind,
Play with your fur,
And make you fly.
Just close your eyes,
And run with me.
Let go of your fears,
Let go of your worries,
And just run with me,
Into the heart of the forest.
Let us run to the peaks,
Of red rusted mountains,
And sing for our luck,
To be wolves,
And to be free,
Let us run.
Lupine TearsLupine tears begin to flowLupine Tears7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Over a form thats clear
With a tail of silky fur
Curled between human legs
A muzzle that seems to glow
Created from a rounded face
Domesticated and brimming with thought
But also hiding feral dreams
The pain filled inside
From a cage that seems to shrink
No family to ease away the pain
No one to lend a willing ear
Leaning by the window's pane
Looking up at the moon in the sky
Wishing for something more
To escape from the world of man
Feeling the familiar aching throat
And the skin tingling sensation
Limbs that shouldnt be
Given life and something new
So close to being whole again
Changing into nature, running free
Away from the hell of steel and iron
Into a paradise made of wood and dreams
MateshipLooking deep within her eyesMateship7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
He could see no hidden lies
The love he felt for her was true
Just like her brightened hue
Without thought or even mind
He didnt know hed be intertwined
With a wolf as loving as this
Soft fur and gentle licking kiss
His tail would wag gently by
And his ears would perk very high
As the sound of her voice had carried fate
He knew she was meant to be his loving mate
Together as one but two just the same
Their love would always be a giant flame
He felt it in his heart and so did she
They both would howl in happy glee
Mates for life, mates forever
They would make it their endeavor
To be happy and to howl as one
Even after both their lives were done.
Neglectful HellFrom the depths of hell they cameNeglectful Hell7 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This
Faceless beings able to worm inside
The place of love and warmth
Just to suck it bloodlessly dry
Most who fall victim to this species of neglect
Are often those who want to willingly love
Showing more for others than themselves
They eventually collapse on the inside
Empty of the heart and will for their soul
Why do these pure and noble souls
Feed the monstrosity known as neglect?
Letting them fester, grow into something worse
Consuming its host painfully slow greedily
Why do they willingly place themselves
In such a burning hell that could kill them?
I have yet to answer my own behavior.
Celestial HowlI howl to the moonCelestial Howl7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
When my heart is cold
My ears are limp
With no one to hold
I howl to the sun
When frustration ignites
Just like a white flame
All through the night
I howl to the sky
For someone to hear
When I need a friend
To ease my lonely fear

Hold your fangs
Sheath your claws
Keep your mind clear
Think before you act
Look before you leap
Feel the cool air
The thought of reason
Let it fill your lungs
Look to the horizon
At the setting sun
And smile quietly
Everything will be ok
As long as you keep it cool
Howl it to the moon
Then just breath
NatureLet the sounds of nature take holdNature7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Drowning out the chatter of cars
Trucks, people, and human civilization
In one exhaling blow
Hear the chips of birds
The sway of green trees
And the gentle waters of babbling brooks
Washing over smooth river stones
Feel the earth beneath your paws
The sun and wind playing with your fur
And feel the beauty that radiates from the land
As only an animal can
Closes your eyes for just one moment..
And feel your wild nature take hold
The urge to hunt, to play, to run
All coursing through your veins
As you howl to the moon
And the animal that resides within your soul
Pack LetterSecret (Adjective): [ Something ] done, made, or conducted without the knowledge of others.Pack Letter3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Everyone has a secret.
Something kept tucked away in the corner of our minds. Things we are ashamed of, things that we shouldn't know or things that we did. Even hiding ones true self from the world for fear of being ridiculed or worse. We all hide things of varying degrees for different reasons.
I hide my secret because it could get me killed.
I wouldn't say I'm anything out of the ordinary. Light brown eyes, darker brown hair, 6 feet tall, average weight, did well in school, friendly to others. I sound like a normal person with not many things to hide, which is true, if you exclude the fact that I'm a werewolf.
I know. I know. It sounds crazy or at least funny from a scientific point of view. A werewolf? Really?
Yeah. A werewolf.
A quadruped wolf with the instincts of a wild, meat eating carnivore and the intelligence of a human being. Something that could easily hunt
RudiHe cried out to the sky in painRudi7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Tears streaming from his ice blue eyes
Staining his brilliant white coat
And dripping to the thirsty earth below
He howled out his broken heart
Feeling it beat under pressure
For the loss of his closest friend
And his mate he once held dear
She was his beating heart,
His soul and mind together
She made him feel whole
But now she was gone forever
Or so he solemnly thought
Everything that was her forever to the end
Was part of his lone felt being
Her kindness, her warmth, her smile
Her laugh, her mind, her heart and her soul
Forever she would look down upon him
Somewhere high in that dark blue sky
Wishing for him to be happy once again
Wishing to see him smile joyfully
I will always be with you
Whether you know it or not
Holding your paw tight
And guiding you back to the light
I love you Rudi
The Wolf WithinThe Wolf Within10 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I need to be free from these human walls
to hunt in the forest and drink from the falls
I need the feel of dirt on my feet
and to hear my prey's quick heart beat
I need to shed off this human skin
so I can be with my animal kin
to grow out my soft wolf coat
and to rip out my prey's throat
to leave this steel and concrete city
for on man I do take pity
to feel the wind in my hair
to live in the wild without a care
fare well to those, my human kin
for I go to release the wolf within
Wild SpiritStuffed inside a little boxWild Spirit7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Crammed until it hurts
The howl is welling up
This time it cant be stopped
Shaking its little wood frame
This howl is coming out
Up to the sky and moon
It will be heard by all
No longer will I sit back and watch
No longer will I be struck down
I will fight back
I will find my light and freedom
Your chains can no longer hold me
Your box can no longer contain me
My wild spirit is uncontrollable
And its the way things should be
Saturday MorningTheres a furry paw pad pressed against my nose.Saturday Morning6 years ago in Spiritual & Occult More Like This
Slowly I open my groggy eyes seeing nothing at first, but hearing all that surrounds me in this little room. Cars honking, engines roaring and even the sounds of some road rage driven human, yelling out his window at the car in front of him, whose driver is going 3 miles under the speed limit.
Oh how I love Los Angeles
But thats not the only thing I can hear, as I snuggle more under the covers and against the five other bodies, pressing back against me. I can hear their breathing.
Yes their breathing.
The others Ive come to meet in this world, and the ones I have grown close too. I mean come on! Were all sleeping in the same bed for Christs sake! Id give my life for them and I know theyd do the same for me or at least I think they would.
Regardless, in this moment now, I cant complain. The warmth of five other wolves ranging in colors from black and brown
SwellThe swelling in my chestSwell7 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Seems to grow and burn
How I long to cry and howl
Spilling my sorrow upon the stars
How I long to run in the wild
Free of human rule
Void of human concern and hate
As the wild wolf, my brother
Running through meadows
Jumping over rocks
Climbing mountains and hills
Resting with a pack
The power to be wild
Trapped by this body and limitations
How sickening it is
But a truth we all must endure

For my beloved wolf pack
Separated by the miles
Unable to see one anothers smiles
Curled alone in darkness
Howling out my plight
Tear stained fur
Never a soft loving murr
Whimpering against the snow
Running from the dark
Searching for the light
My friends, my siblings my pack
Dont be lost in the black
