Life's Own Loss


The shallowness of humanity
shall form a great wall
surrounding the simplicity of love
and turn it into a mine
dark and alone, with nothing but black
whilst people sit chip at her sides
and destroy the true meaning of how
the greatest, most historical diamond
the world had ever seen
flowed freely on the lips of lovers
and spread through a trail of open hearts
waiting to love, waiting to belong
just waiting, until the ends of time.
