Gargoyles

Frozen in place
Stone cold face

Poised to pounce
From heavenly mounts

Wings wide spread
Above the head

Jagged teeth bare
Wicked eyes glare

Eyes that penetrate
Discerning evil's fate

Above chains rattle
Below men battle

Wings spread wide
About to glide

Life at stake
Action to take

In the dark
Faint heard bark

Street of screams
Blood in streams

Sudden silence falls
Outside the halls

Return to peace
From brief release

Frozen in place
Stone cold face

 

I wrote this after staring a bit too long at the gargoyles I had sitting about the house.

I tried something new for me, rhyming and rules (like 3 words per line). It was a bit harder than I would have thought, but I think I like this more than some of the others.
