Shattered Diamond.

Lost Angel

Turn a new trick

She reaches to pick up

a hand full of dimes

and prays that none of

her family can see

her crimes.

Strolls through the concrete jungle

and beads of time.

Night by night,

paid favors to her guest delight.

Fulfilling their lust laden,

animalistic dreams,

While deaf heaven turns nigh

to her bootless screams.

Unceremoniously and brutally raped

she leans hard against the leprous wall,

bleeding.

Under tongue she cries, brooding,

and bewails the wounds of fate,

silently pleading,

Turn this misery into an

orphaned child and cast it down

the river Lethe with a soulless smile.

Leave me blue,but love me true.

She kneed, stands alone praying,

but that goes without saying.

Yellow mini-skirt and tank tops torn,

is all she can afford.

While her fellow man insouciantly

passes her front door.

She saves her riches

for her new home with a delightful decor.

Tapestries in gold, drapes in green,

accent colors bursting at the seam.

Tongue tales spoken

for her childhood dream.

To walk upright, mindful, and serene

and find a lover devoid of extreme.
