Beast

Leave a comment

Stalking through the dark of night_

Gnashing teeth and claw like talons.

Hungry lips curled back in want_

Seeking that which he’ll devour.

Slipping in and out of shadow_

Hunger growing ever stronger.

Frantic now, in ravenous need_

He scents the air for his prey.

Innocence walking down the path_

Never knowing of the danger.

With speed and skill he lunges forth_

Ripping, tearing at the flesh.

Dripping blood from teeth and jowl_

Feeding on the end of life.

From the book: “Soaring Dreams ~ Daunting Reality”

I'm a novelist, poet, and artist. I love books, nature, art, and gardening. I'm a rock hound and there's a photo of me with a cool fossil rock on my about page, I take a lot of nature pictures. The background here is one of mine. Unfortunately I recently lost my wonderful husband, but I'm grateful to have the blessing of two beautiful sons. elizabethmeltonparsons.wordpress.com is © Elizabeth Melton Parsons 2007-2017.
