what a waste

Written by: Blythe Journey

a most rare diamond
in a crevice of the deepest cave
its radiance hidden from the world
the human eye deprived of its luster
a waste 
what a waste

the magenta bloom of a rose 
behind the winding thorny vines
of the thickened forest
its aroma diminished
before it can be breathed in
a waste 
what a waste

a vibrant beauty longing for love
to be treasured but ignored
willing to promise her very being
to an indifferent man
full of his own interests
full of himself
a waste 
what a waste
