Childe Of The Night...

byAncient117331©

If U were an animal, what would U be?

To this question I spoke out briefly...
succinctly,
purposefully,
reasoned-ably.

Human...
  Remember...

Oft forgotten
just what we are -
I am...

Human...
  Remember...

There is a darkness shared inside
that leaks and leers the crooked smile
and sneers all the while
at any that think they touch or know
the depths that we as beings go
to reach the recesses abscessing within
that festers and grows - our other skin.

Human...
  Remember...

Shattered and smashed
     slashed and splashed
hooked and torn asunder -
     to maniacal dreams
of empowering schemes
that kill
           anything
and take
          everything

Human...
  Remember...

"Childe Of Night..."

Call the wolf
...wait...
call again.
Watch -
soft pads pace
circle
pace.

Draw it CLOSE,
hard breathing
eyes matched -
kinship stare shared.
Acceptance...
nuzzle, pinch, nip.
Growl - throat bared...
teeth
jaws close
TIGHT.
R-I-P.
Warm-wetness flowing -
spraying...
peace
at last -
peace.

Taste...
drink deep
sleep.
Yes... sleep,
til the morrow climbs
  high above
    all.
Sleep...
  remember...

Human...
