Whatever about love; when it fades;

You may go into the darkest corner

Or just face it ; or like me pretend you do.

That the hardest stone of all comes from the unrelenting of

Eternal crushing terrestrial forces;

Of straining tectonic plates; volcanic fires.

They forge in the smithy of our planet

That most precious jewel of all;
The Diamond;

Why do you crush from the yearning heart?

Every thing that is the essence of our love;

With a fire so fierce and a force so vast;

That I can no longer stand the brutal pain of constraint., and dammed restriction.

The smallest pressures bear upon the heart, incessantly; remorselessly

Until the love must die

And maybe so will I

And you may have what’s left of our spent love;

Emotions turned as brittle as flint;

Maybe a diamond; as big as the Ritz.

But still a rock.

The final symbol of loves failure .
