Diamond Skin

Diamond Skin
By Kevin Robey
August 3, 2013

I see you standing there
Angel of darkness and light
Holding your blade in the air
Eyes shining through my night

Your pale white skin glistens
Light of a thousand diamonds
I’ll hold your hand and listen
Straight into the bitter end

If my mind survives the chaos
I’ll see a smile I’ll never explain
My aging face will show the cost
A thousand deaths for what I’ll gain

But if that call never comes
I’ll find that smile anyway
No regrets for what I’ve done
Memories will guide me through the day
