The Flight Of The Gargoyle

love danceSometimes,

When I really

Miss you,

I remind myself

That you’re only

A Gargoyle flight

Away.

I could head

To the roof

Of The House

On the Hill,

And ask Gary

To take me

To visit

The Girl

Who Owns

My Heart.

Sometimes,

When I really

Miss you,

I write

Romantic poems

From bed.

I move

To your side,

My head

On your pillow,

And allow

The words

To fly

Across the miles

Like they’re

Riding on a

Gargoyle.

When you

Read them,

Can you still

Feel the love?

May these words

Tuck you in

And remind you

Of the boy

Back home,

Who’d risk

His life

On the back

Of a Gargoyle

Just to stare

Into your

Big brown eyes

Again.
