Diamond Jewel

I met her and encountered the Gods.
A brilliant, jeweled diamond with the
dark skin of a wild oak. Her kindness 
soothed cuts to my heart like fine lotion.
Soon I was sailing to the depths of her

Arose a thunder cloud, an intruder 
after her diamond touch. With blazing 
bullets he shot once, then twice as my 
heart burst open... he stole her soul
and lied about me denouncing her
every thread of kindness

Left alone, desolate on a barren isle
I survived and bitterly flourished as 
the black storm broke my bones in 
desolation... I only remember she
was my diamond jewel.
