The Fallen Beast
Hidden away from the cruel world
the love between woman and beast arises
a bond so strong but kept in secret
for they know it is forbidden
The soft gaze in each others eyes,
beating hearts slow and warmth takes over.
both longing for each other’s touch
savoring each moment for it might be the last.
Both knowing the hunter is on the hunt
trying to put an end to their forbidden love
always relenting and never giving up
he is getting closer with each passing moment
The hunter tracks the vial beast
with blood boiling and determination.
he walks softly and smells the air
hoping to end this forbidden love
Drawing close to the soon be prey
he takes his aim with the mighty bow
asking the gods for his aim to be true
to end this beast’s reign over this girl
The arrow released and flying straight
it hits it’s target with a thudding blow
driving itself deep within the heart
heart not of evil but instead of love
The woman gasps and the beast is hit
she knows their affair has come to an end
time slows to a crawl as the beast drops
She runs to be close til the very end
A tear of sadness falls upon the hairy flesh.
For the hunter’s aim was true and swift.
the beast falling within a lover’s arms
ending the secret love of woman and beast.
Silence falls as the woods go quiet
to morn over the death of a fallen foe
for the hunter will soon find out
his kill was not worth the hunt
for the woman’s bond was true and just.
