Poetry

Howl

A howl shatters the calm of night

Birds caw, taking flight

He is not hunting,

Rather, he’s searching

For his mate, the other half of his heart

 

Another howl echoes across the silence

Slicing through the thick and dense

Fog, but it goes on and on without

Acknowledgement and he begins to doubt

His mate, the other half of his heart

 

Last howl breaks and cracks

Dwindling away into the black

Of the dark and unforgiving night

He understands the depth of his plight

He has lost his mate, the other half of his heart

Howl
