One night alone
With Medussa
And already a statue
Pointing out to sea.
Waiting for the seagulls
T o pluck away my heart.

It took more than a look
I grant you that;
Her powers are fading
After all these years.

But stone I am,
And stone, I will be;
Til time,
And wind,
And rain,
Endeth me.

I really liked this one
especially the lines


But stone I am,
And stone, I will be;
Til time,
And wind,
And rain,
Endeth me.

Welcome to the family! This was well done, I liked it! (Question: Where do you find those guestbooks that you sign?)
