Black Diamond

On the border of the obscure wastelands, In the depths of shadows and torments, Far beyond the land of Never Was, Never Will Is a place where I hold you, strong and silent… As the shards of your sensitive sadness prevail, Sifting the awaiting coals below, I shall reflect slivers of your light upon the darkest woe! I fight with the broken alliance within the dimmest coves, I mean to pull you into Death’s demise Where the pained poets prevail and the suns of justice arise So that e’en the coldest of coals reach warmth! Generating power so strong, that the gods step aside As these diamonds-to-be burst into the light of day Revealing your words of Always Was… and Always Will The Black Diamond, once captive…finally free…though coal black still!
For Shadow Hamilton's Contest: Fighting Depression(poems for PD) 12/7/14

Nice. I fell like a cheap suit in run down motel. But I think what I know you want out of this poem and you managed it. ~Kilmer~

Laura, Congratulations on your win. I'm finally making time to read every entry, intended for me in Shadow's Hamilton depression contest. It was a tough fight, however at the end I prayed, and asked to take over and he did. WOW, it was what I call a miracle. Thanks for lifting my day with this poem... Love LINDA
