100 word Horror

Dark of Night

by Wils

It is growing deep inside
Resist the urge, at least I tried
This thing within me is so strong
It overtakes me, can’t prolong
Guttural noises in my throat
Wishing there were an antidote
Hair comes from places not defined
The wolf has possessed my mind
Long-sounding howl to moon so bright
I am a hunter of the night
This werewolf leaves a trail of red
Your throat be eaten, you be dead
Ripped open with sharp teeth and claws
Your gristle dripping from my jaws
Lifelong curse is mine to bear
If I am loose, you best take care
