The click of metal echoed off the cave walls.
Eyes flashed and teeth glinted at the vicious wolf’s call.
claws scraped stone and jaws cracked bones.
The wolfs deadly howl was as fierce as his own.
His eyes darted challengingly to and fro.
Till his eyes landed on his foe.
growling he leaped, his steel claws scraping the stone underfoot.
the wolfs eyes flashed, soot black blood dripped from his gnashed fangs.
they fought frousiously, moonlight bathing their black coats silver.
whimpers sounded as fang met flesh
claws ripped fur and made old wounds fresh
blood ran cold as it ran though mesh.
The battle cries made rocks collide.
But not even rocks could bury his enemys pride.
For nothing could beat his deadly stride.
not even his ambition could he hide
screech after screech cry after cry.
And never again will he sigh
He gazed up at the sky one more time
before closing his eyes and letting out one last cry…
