Waiting
L A Winterburn

The man he is poised
With the gun in his mouth
Struggling with fear
With pain and with doubt

His life now behind him
Being to slow to learn
He knows this is true
His soul it must burn

He watches and waits
It canít come too soon
As he looks out the window
He waits for the moon

His finger puts pressure
So gentle and light
The bloodline still running
It must end tonight

The moon as it shows
Moves out from a cloud
Before it was covered
As if by a shroud

His mouth clamped on muzzle
His hands start to shake
His body convulsing
As his teeth start to break

Then he falls off his chair
Blood pours from his jaw
His body is changing
As he rolls on the floor

The chair knocked behind him
His trousers they tear
The pain on his face
As his eyes shed a tear

Grey hairs are now pushing
Up through his skin
A gurgling sound
This creature canít win

His claws now extending
His jaw is as well
Not long to wait now
He is ready for hell

The wolf now emerging
From what used to be man
His own peace heíll cause
And rest if he can

Then just at that moment
The noise heard is dull
The Gun fires one round
Through the back of his skull

"Very discriptive language and clear delivery. You're getting more talented by the day :)" -- Karen.
"That's a pretty good piece. I think it's sad however that he only had one way out." -- Sean, OR, USA.
"Yeah it is sad that he only had one way out. But I dont think that there was any other way of ending it. Any way I am sick of the good guy all ways winning read my story the visitor lol" -- The Author.
"shouldn't have ended it that way. should have ended it in a slow, touching, emotional way. a way that'll fit the structure of the poem. like he changed his mind about actually killing himself. know what i mean?" -- lori-ann.
"No Lori-Ann I dont know what you mean. Did you actually read the poem and understand it? the fact is, the man was a werewolf and although i dont say "the man is a werewolf" it is actually hinted at during the peice, and to say that maybe he could have changed his mind shows niavety in the sense of, it was a man who had no where to go and no one to turn to. So you tell me another way out of his predicament? considering that he is a monster that is going to kill indiscriminately whenever there is a full moon." -- the author.
"*****This was good. I liked the choice that the man/wereworlf made at the end. " -- d donely.
