Fractured Diamonds

by The Exquisite

... years of
crying tears,
drinking your tears
fending off your fears

as you
rent to ruble
your spacious shelter
of the fortress in my heart

abandoned my Ark,
my monsoon of love 
could not quench your parchedness 

a heavenly body
unraveled into a black hole,
ruthlessly gorging,
eternity cannot heal those wounds

a despairing departure,
dragging the burden
of a brokenhearted behemoth

even a fractured diamond, 
although defected,
aspires to shine
through spiderly cracks

whence hast thine cherished caterpillar gone?
a matured moth
captivated being
consumed by the fire...
