Gargoyle (Girl)


Poem Commentary

It must have been something I ate, for in the late night this appeared on my writers plate... hmmm I wonder what I should serve up for desert?!

Gargoyle (Girl)

Gargoyle (Girl)

Perched upon her temple’s pedestal of self; raised to the succinct height of greedy yearnings she awaits her audience.

Her true spirit is imprisoned to remain captive to a select few that only whisper what they want her to hear.

Longing for attention the soul of being was sacrificed for the acceptance of countless falsifications.

Unyielding and nonconforming to the emotions of her surroundings, she isn’t fully aware that she has become a statue impenetrable to the perplexities of what were once perfect affections.

Once alive and full of passion; with inflexible comprehension she gave over to a hardened heart, left to sit scrofulous and stone faced atop her rigid ledge.

Tears begin to stream from an unblinking stare and deep within - the nightmare of a stagnant release is all that is left, as the brain’s tower tolls with ringing reminders of her loss.

 Inwardly, she uncontrollably turns marble cold as the life blood of his love drains from her existence forever more.

you paint the picture so well of love lost and the soul turns to stone as his love seeps out.. A ture love that is beyond life itself . the gargole is a stroke of genius or should i say to many beens in your chili . Great write Marie



Why thank you my friend... you looked closely and did not turn to stone but let your mind see straight within the story that my vision sought to verbalize.

I love this piece! The 5th & 6th stanzas are perfection, and sadly so true.. Too many gargoyles

"...the brain's tower tolls with ringing reminders of her loss." I could go on for pages with that concept... (but, you don't have enough space here for that) Self-centeredness will be the death of all who are saturated by it's poison, and an air of coldness will precede us in deed and reputation. Thanks for sharing your great insight.

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
