LUPUS ANIMA

Beset by melancholy  
chilled to the bone  
alone he trudges  
ever higher  
on the remote mountain trail  

Wishing instead  
to be laying next to her  
their naked bodies pressed  
in warm, euphoric embrace  
measureless love forces his exile  
 
His pale complexion glows  
illuminated by the moon  
full and ascending rapidly  
in the clear Autumn sky  
he trembles neath the beaming visage  
 
Exhausted body and soul  
he curls up under a majestic pine  
dreading the rising tide of transformation  
eyes shut tightly yearning for sleep  
knowing tonight there will be none  
 
Excruciating cries-turned-howls  
shatter the nocturnal calm cursing heaven  
tufts of dark gray fur erupt through skin  
sharp fangs rupture tender gums  
eviscerating claws sprout from hands-cum-paws  
 
Awakened by the stench of rotting refuse  
he lay bare naked and shivering  
prostrate on the alley’s frigid pavement  
the sweet perfume of his beloved penetrates the stink  
clenched fist reveals bloodied, shredded lace  
 
Bitterly he weeps
