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!
