The Beast Within

Inside I have this aching

An aching that is not so easy to satisfy

One that claws at me consistently

Inside is where it lies

 

I beg to wander the wild

To be free and do as I wish

To browse the possibilities

By hunting deer, squirrel, and fish

 

I wish to strip off my clothing and to just run

To strip free of the bonds that tie

I wish to phase into what I really am, to become a beast

Inside is where it lies

This is a very beautiful, very well written piece of art. It reminds me of a few characters I've read in stories. It's quite interesting how you wrote it. It was a way I wouldn't have chosen, but it's quite good. I like this alot. I'm Reading this before I read your novel, mostly because the title caught my eye. This poem makes me think you are describing someone, or something in your story. Anyways, ignore my ramblings.

WHAT AM I?: Nephilim WHAT AM I?: Nephilim
A teen boy gets killed, but trades his soul for another chance. He changes. A girl notices the new boy with silver eyes.
OOOO very nice! I REALLY enjoyed this. Again, it's a great partner poem to go with the novel and a bit of foreshadowing, I think. Excellent flow and I enjoyed it immensely! :)

Good poem, I can't wait to see how it relates to the story. I found 2 typos:' wonder' should be' wander', and in the last stanza of' should be 'off.'

It's good overall... one note, "I beg to wonder the wild" Should be: "
I beg to wander the wild"
