The Song

by Ramblings of an ageing Kid   Sep 7, 2011


And he sings his song to the grace of air
Wrap it in the drops of rain
And when it collides into your skin
The strings of melodies fly unchained

And a memory of your face recalled
Disturbing yet complements the act
The prince calls out in the name of God
How this creation would stay intact

Untouched by greed, glory, or fame
Unraveled by time, power, or poverty
And closer when his heart it seems
Begins to shatter into shards of misery

The truth that lies within your heart
Where you shall embrace us all
That the prince has left his castle for
The last grain of dust and its bound to fall

    Wow.. this poem is really interesting... I can see that it has a lot of underlying meaning, but I really like how portrayed it... I love your metaphors throughout the poem and your choice of words were perfect..

    I loved this stanza!!
    And the ending was perfect... well done! The only criticism I would have is that I felt the title wasn't totally relevant to the whole poem (just my opinion) but it's your poem and you chose it for a reason =) Well done!
