When Shadows Fall

Summer is on the turn, into Autumn we now head So close this day approaches, inside many heads now dread We now view through our eyes, our windows of life What do we see now, do we absorb our awaiting strife Be like me and others and listen to peripheral sounds It's what we have come to know, it's us all around Day by day we view, the turning of life's greenery But what are we going to see after, on this future days scenery Is it intrepid anticipation, human wondering entering it's abyss We're the blind leading our blind, just what do we make of this *~* The eve of this reckoning day, in hourly wait we await Autumn has taken it's turn, are us humans in use by date This morning we have awaited, curtains drawn I view There's something different about the sunrise, sees me a through From my balcony I witness, now seeing from where I am Shape shifting no longer applies, I just don't understand In sorrow fill hungered loss, I lose life's lust for thrall From my balcony I now witness, I view when shadows fall *~* Inspired by "Touchstone's" <> "When Shadows Fall" from their album "The City Sleeps"

My God, this very fine write has no comments! I see it as a solid 10 but can only give a 7.. Adding this fine one to my fav list and thanks much! "In sorrow fill hungered loss, I lose life's lust for thrall From my balcony I now witness, I view when shadows fall" ending lines are killer!!!

Written using the Album tracks from one of my favourite bands, and their album 'The City Sleeps' so so glad you passed by this poem Robert, as I feel it's one of my better ones. Maybe it's too out there for the Soup, as are many of mine - your poetry friend, James.....
