LJ Idol: Week 16

Topic: When is a monster not a monster? Oh, when you love it.



Gorgon Boy

In the mythos that we dwell in
All my cohorts flock to Helen
With her tresses dangling golden
All my brethren are beholden

But oh

In the cavern they don’t tread in
All the noise and whispers deaden
With my footsteps edging forward
All my longing leads me toward

You

In the darkness drawing hither
All your silence starts to slither
With your gaze upon my shoulder
All my shaking makes me bolder

You petrify me

Gorgon Boy, I hear you calling
Now there’s no more thoughts of stalling
Let’s see who is truly stronger
Look my way a little longer
There’s no hero in this story
We don’t need one—just our glory
There’s no monster here to vanquish
So come close—release my anguish

Look me in the eye
Do I petrify you?
