Moonlight

~*~*~

The bells ring in the distance,
Night has fallen.
The moon plays hide and seek
With the whimsical clouds.

A howl can be heard,
Shattering the silence.
As the rays of the silvery orb
Fall softly to the ground.

A single thread of moonlight
Creeps through the windowpane.
I feel a twitching in my fingers,
Now is the time to transform.

The senses sharpen,
The mind becomes a hazy daze.
I can smell flesh and blood,
Now is the time to kill…

~*~*~

This  is my first attempt at horror poetry (is that what one would call it?).

    For your first attempt, you hit it spot on!

    I like the imagery of:

    As the rays of the silvery orb
    Fall softly to the ground

    and

    The senses sharpen,
    The mind becomes a hazy daze.
    I can smell flesh and blood,
    Now is the time to kill…

    ssscarrry!

    Rhyme on!

  5. This is so great! I love that you gradually lead us through the transformation using the feelings, smells, and senses of the beast :3

  6. I agree, great first attempt. Like a stroll down transformation lane using all senses.
    Great job…
