Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend


Image

she grew

violets beneath her eyes

of purple prose

black and blue

recited day after day

each morning

she opened her windows

released the blackbirds

and the rains came

falling hard

each night as she closed her eyes

the blackbirds returned

she grew diamonds in her sky

the most precious was at night

stone of darkness

black diamond

she used

and cutting a hole in her heart

her toxic love escaped

releasing the chains

that held her hostage

and one morning

she picked the violets

opened her windows

released the blackbirds

and as night returned

gave back the diamond

to the darkness

and left

never to return
