The Girl With The Full Moon Face

My girl is special

Words fail me in description;

Her face like that of a full moon,

Round and ever so vibrant.

On nights of a full moon she comes to life

Her back arches,

Her nails extend

Her teeth elongate

Her toes become claws

Her hairy exterior glows

She discards clothing

Runs erratically

The perimeter of the yard.

Howls with blood curdling ferocity

Disappears for hours on end

Returns home sated,

Slinks into my bed

Her fury coat warm against the winter chill,

Snuggles into me

Sleeps peacefully.

At dawn she awakens

My beautiful girl

The girl with the full moon face is back.

    Whoaaa! 😀 Such an incredible depiction of the girl with the full moon face. She sounds exciting as well as terrifying all at the same time with reference to “Howls with blood curdling ferocity, disappears for hours on end and returns home sated.” Beautifully executed! Thank you so much for participating at Prompt Nights Michael 🙂 and for your constant love and support ❤❤

    Lots of love,

    This is s great story and the love a trust shown by the man is admirable, but I expect she is worth it! Your voice over is fine and I look forward to reading (or hearing) your future work.

    I’m sorry I nearly fell off the couch laughing. Probably just nerves. It had to have been quite a fright to witness that first breakout of the glowing exterior! 😂 But certainly would add a new dimension to the relationship. That was a great read Michel 😄

      Yes you can imagine it coming as a surprise but the snuggle at the end of her night would have made up for it I would think. Thanks Mandy, glad to give you a giggle.😄

    Such a beautiful piece of prose – and one of acceptance.. it could be fantasy or it could be that each loves each other for who they are and all of their special features

  7. I love this, Michael. I’m enchanted by the fact that he loves all of her, and that even after such transformation she knows to come home to cuddle with her heart.

    P.S. You and I were riding the same thought waves, indeed. 🙂

  8. Such a great monster story. Your recording added so much to the enjoyment of it
