POETRY // A BRIGHT DIAMOND

A BRIGHT DIAMOND
I thought and thought
About how I would weave him into a poem
But dear Lord he’s too crass for poetry
I would dream of tall, dark and handsome
Of panache and smooth elegant flirting
And Lord sent me tall, dark and handsome
Of the roughest, brashest quality
Tsk
But underneath the cloak
His soft gentle heart lay hidden
He was a rough diamond
One in need of refinement
Ain’t nobody tell me it ain’t easy polishing a diamond
I cut myself to pieces
And the diamond caught me in its sparkle
