421 (who?)
She's a diamond, while I am coal.
I am the coal, black and boring.
Set me on fire while I am alive.
Watch me burn,
Watch me die.
She is the diamond, shiny and attention-grabbing.
Lay your greedy hands on the whore.
She's there for the looks and money,
No real work,
She receives the perks.

We both wanted him,
But I bit my tongue.
What a fool I would be to ask for his heart.
He sees me as a footrest,
Only here for support and only when he needs it,
The demand for me is limited.
He lusts for her seductive nature,
Her glare blinding his eyes,
She's tearing him apart with her sharp edges,
It kills me to witness.

"I can't hurt you.
I glimmer,
she burns."

"But she is my support,
my joy,
she cares."

"She is but a coal,
weak and pitiful.
You want that?
The spineless coward?
The killer?
She's thirsty for your heartbreak,
but my fingers are gentle,
let me hold you."

His situation is himself.
I love him more than I could scream,
But I maintain my silence,
I suffer in the dark.
I see his sorrow and hate,
I beg without a soul,
I've given up on it,
I should inform him.

"My dear, I am dead.
My dear, hang your head.
Your shame,
Your misery,
Foolish boy, you brought this on yourself.
The floozy,
Your lover,
Is nothing but a fraud.
A cheap, good-for-nothing slut who's flawed.
I've been yearning for you for months,
I thought it was my time to shine.
But you don't notice my pleas.
You're more concerned with that bitch,
Not me sobbing on my knees.
I loathe your love,
Your senseless harlot.
You're just another tally for her score,
The concubine who only wants more.
You make me feel like a dog,
Keeping me away from your mind.
You two can eat your hearts out.
Promise you'll leave me be.
I'm sick of my addiction to you.
Another boy who turned his back on me.
I am clumsy,
I am disgusting,
I am bloody.
I almost dared to ask:

Can we both be ugly?"
"Can we both be ugly? We can both be ugly fucks."

Even though some people are not diamonds but coals, Fire shines brighter than any diamond.

By my standards at least
DestryDisenchanted Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Fire burns; it can destroy, or provide the light needed.

Your standards are true
WQFHWCS Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Also very true. But if controled it shouldn't be a problem. Like a candle

Yes they are :'D

But even a small candle can create a burn when one isn't careful.

Very true, and even the tiniest spark can hurt.

:'D Lovely poem

I'm going through the exact same thing and god, it hurts. :l
But think about it... the right person will eventually come along and see that you're really just a pretty little diamond. :3

I know, it hurts bad. :/ But, yes, the right person will come along, and make you shine. (:

I know you've probably gotten this a lot, but I'm going through about the same thing. This just spoke to me so much. Thanks for sharing. We will all get through our trials!

Ah, it's no problem. Actually, thank you for commenting, stepping forward and telling me that it relates to you. It's my goal to reach to some with my work. And, yes, we will. We will all shine soon! :D
