Gargoyle

Gargoyle
water boils
fire flickers
carver toils

Chisel the creature
of the shadows
looking down so
grimaced and still
there's a chill
in the air all around
where he sits
up on the crown
of darkness
and the night ahead

Laughing at
the sunlight dead
perched with his wings
folded under
clawed and curled up
as he waits
for the bait

You sit and ponder
as he captivates your gaze
wandering down a windy maze
by the marble stone walls
it’s because you've stonewalled
and he growls your way

Flickering fire, lighting rays
all ablaze
in darker days...
that’s the Gargoyle’s way
