Black Diamond Night

Name's irrelevant
It is what we know inside
The unobtainable bride
Postured on the eyes
Black diamond night, I said
Velvet wrap from toe to head

Her eyes sparkled white
And from her teeth light rebound
She was black song without sound
Dark night without moon
Except in fragrance, the bud
Of dawn breaks and ripples blood

Desire set to ruin
Upon the pigment melting
Silence in ebon basking
A jewel of flesh
A worth beyond all price
A blackness that sweet entice

And she parading
Her figure draping frail clothes
Knows not how tongues are dried up
And rivers congeal
And light in crystal movements
Seek revelation in love

A model, she's billed
But she like ebony ice
On oiled limbs her core sufficed
Black diamond night
Drinking stars, swallowing light
Magic on the naked sight.
