She was a diamond

She was a diamond

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"

We need to be thankful when we hold something precious in our hands.

"
She was a  Diamond
 
                               20 Nov. 1994
 
The drunk man toasts to better days.
We touched shot glasses.
I asked him.
Did he ever see a woman who shone like a diamond?
So bright  with hope and love.
She can bring you out of this hell?
My drunk friend just turns away.
 
I wander to a safe and quiet corner.
I remember her blue eyes.
Clear as a mountain stream.
Her flowing auburn hair.
Her beautiful smile that still can bring a smile back to me.
 
She was a baby in living.
I was soil with hate and disappointment.
Today I wonder why she came to me?
 
In a dark corner of a dancing Bar in Austin, Texas.
She came to me with a sweet smile.
She asks me.  Could I two-step a-bit?.
I told her I do my best.
 
She talks my ears off.
I listen to her beautiful voice.
She was full of dreams and hope.
We became friends.
 
She taught me laughter.
Taught me to hope and dreams again.
She was a diamond in a life.
Brought me out of my self made hell.
 
I may of taught her to view the world with different eyes.
She stood her ground.
Held on to her dreams.
She is something today.
Educated and helping people.
 
I wish to stand at a distance.
Her life loaded with real problems now.
 
I have hope.
A few dreams.
Maybe one day I will look into those blue eyes.
Thank her for her kindness and love.
 
Women are the reasons for good men to hold on to dreams.
 
I'm thankful.
I held a diamond in my hand.
Her hope and love overtook my heart.

I quite liked this one...it was a story within a poem, and I truly loved the sentiment. We often don't know what we have had until we have let it slip through our fingers...then we write about it. Such is the life of a poet i suppose. You have crafted this with stark and gritty imagery that I truly appreciated. Well done.

Very nice! You have a way with words. Not too cliche (this definitely could have been if you let it) But you didn't! Only complaint is that it puts that annoying Rhianna song in my head (but not your fault!) Haha nice work.

There should be more men out there in this world who have your heart, your thoughts about love and loyalty and how to treasure and treat a lady...that is if she is deserving... and if she is a lady

"did he ever see a woman who shone like a diamond" would smooth out that line.

"women are the reasons for good men to hold onto dreams"

i like that...and i like the attitude in this poem toward this woman.

the friendship part being so important..that first...the other comes second...respect and friendship the most important parts of a relationship...it will help the union withstand most anything.

i like this poem...want a part 2 to see if they actually get together in a different way.

The beauty of this story is the honesty of Coyote.
The person who can recognize diamond can be happy.
For a man ,a woman comes as a diamond to save him out of hell.
Likewise,a woman may also be saved from the hell as a diamond-like man.
We humans can do wrong.
But that should not be the last word.
We may be rectified by fellows to live happily.
Very well written piece.
The sentence is worth a quote,"Women are the reasons for good men to hold on to dreams".
Congratulations!!!
