My friends are best parts of my life. I need them a lot. This is the way I felt on a day so stressed and alone in this terrible pandemic situation.

There's no one to talk at all

Overwhelm alone in me

My heart's always broken

Wish I had a diamond heart



Crying and sobbing all day long

Sleeping neither stops me fall

Therapists all I hate the most

Bring back memories eternal and long



I wish that I'm bulletproof

No sad moments go through my heart

But that hits me like thunder storm

Wish my heart was made of stone



Stress hits me so often and hard

Doesn't leave me behind at all

*Hope I'll meet my friends very soon*

Oh, I wish I had a diamond heart

Nicely done.

I had a wee thought, as I was reading the title. Diamonds are too material. Too costly to possess, if one should ever own it. Then you would have to keep it under lock and key, from those who want to steal it. If you never want your heart to break, then you need to make sure its not so hard and too expensive, as you many never feel and friends would be material.

I choose to make my hest out of Silly Putty. It practically has no value, unless your a kid. It's soft and plyable. Meaning it can be squashed and ooz through your hands, and reformed back into shape. Though it can be a bit addictive if one is fidgety. I guess such a heart would be a bit gross for some on a hot day. Ever try to get silly putty out of clothes. Ick! Well it goes to show you... if it is not one thing, its another. Nothing Is perfect, just accept what you have as it is, and hopefully you'll find any broken heart can be mended. Just don't use Crazy Glue. Geeze I could go on forever about Crazy Glue.

Very well written dear.

Great poem! It's nice to read how you value friendship a lot. I appreciate the effort you put into formatting the different verses. I also hope that this pandemic ends. All of us are pretty keen on the chance to hang out and destress. :)

Indeed! Thank you for reading Ann =D

All the nice things have already been said, and I can't think of something constructive to say. But the only two things that I think you may need to work on is:
1. Your English. I'm not saying it's bad, but you do need to at least be aware of the small mistakes, such as missing out an 'a' or two.
2. I, myself(being very odd and sometimes taking things too literally) thought that your choice of words could use some work, as you want a diamond heart because it would supposedly solve your negative feelings, but you described your human heart as shattering, then you wished you had a diamond one.
Diamonds can still shatter. So I found that a bit odd.
Sorry for the unnecessarily long comment, I might just be nitpicking.

Reading your poem, you might not have a diamond heart, but a teflon body. Nothing sticks to you and you keep going.

I get what you mean. We sorely miss our family and friends during this pandemic. Let's hope it will end soon. Hope you can see your friends and go to school normally.
