I gave you diamonds

bellowed murmur, muted shout-
I gave you diamonds.

You gulp it down because it’s all you have,
you ingest the hate because it’s all you know,
festering torment in decaying bones,
I gave you diamonds.

Keep it burning, brighter and brighter,
the candle snickers, glitters, whispers,
bellowed murmur, muted shout-
I gave you diamonds.

Seductive sighs, you flee from touch,
the venom belies the lucid truth-
You monster, burn it brighter, dammit-
Brighter.

I gave you diamonds,
You gave me life.

The End
