Diamond

heart diamonds
not shaped like them, he says
but are found within you
dig deep, dig deep
it glows warm like topaz
but valued above that
you can’t wear it, girl
i said you can’t wear it
and i can’t buy it
it’s already a part of you

sweet as the sugar
more rich than honey
that diamond, precious diamond
you are my precious diamond
diamond in my heart
i can’t sell you to anyone
but i will keep you safe
safe so your shine won’t dull
safe so your shine won’t go out
let me into your heart, dear
into your diamond
and i will keep you safe
