Flash Haiku for Full Moon (Continuation Challenge)

(Undead)Poet, Lisa Gail Green started this Haiku-stream with the following Haiku:

Full moon pulls the tide
the beast pulses deep inside
rips through will not hide

She and (Undead)Poet Margo Gremmler thought it might be cool to continue the theme, so I am turning it into a challenge. Please add your continuation (i.e. next stanza) Flash Haiku in the comments. Let’s see how long this puppy will go! (For those who may wonder what we mean by “flash”, it is your first rough draft – bam! – just put it out there; don’t fuss over it, don’t edit it. Just be the Haiku…)

OK, here’s my flash continuation(s):

Must resist; must fight
feelings eating my insides
too late, can’t stop now…

Flesh and bone bubble
morphing into fur and teeth
beware, my loved ones!

Rhyme on!

    Here’s what we have so far:

    (Lisa)
    Full moon pulls the tide

    the beast pulses deep inside

    rips through will not hide

    (Tim)
    Must resist; must fight

    feelings eating my insides

    too late, can’t stop now…

    Flesh and bone bubble

    morphing into fur and teeth

    beware, my loved ones!

    (Rachel)
    Face you think you know

    becomes muzzle, filled with teeth,

    above heart of fire.

    (Tim)
    Mirror reflects pain

    losing myself in horror

    must fight to stay me

    Rhyme on!
