Diamond- Rumbling Tumbling Rambling

Diamond- Rumbling Tumbling Rambling

A Poem by Jack Diamond
"

See if you can figure it out. I'll give two comments to anyone who has a good guess, ten to anyone who gets it right. Here is a hint "gnuJ lraC"

"

Back and fourth, to and frow

 

Watch the shadows dance

 

Chace it down but let it go

 

Can't wait for my last chance

 

Love me today but leave me alone

 

Touch me to feel me go

 

Watch the shadows sing their silence

 

Extinguish all the glow

 

 

Just mask your face and run the race

 

Chace light back to the dawn

 

Cast off your embrace of fading grace

 

Forsake the will that says "HOLD ON!"

 

 

The creature plots the shadows fight

 

To bring a most fiendish end

 

Giving away my soul tonight

 

My lovely, deadly trend

 

 

My organ dies but coos and cries

 

My life held in a box

 

Hearing silent pines between the lines

 

Now starts my latin pox

 

 

I flew too high perhaps that's why

 

I've lost my wings of wax

 

Behind the eye so many die

 

To pay the freedom tax.

It's about the mind, it seems. Can't make it up one day, know all too well what you want the next. Decisions, making choices.

It has great flow, but I'm not sure that I have the message down to a t...it seems like someones struggling with the love of another. Maybe they feel like they don't deserve or need it cause its fleeting but they can't admit it (that's just a guess, i'm probably way wrong) but anyway it's a great poem!
