My Dear Rusting Diamond - Poem by justice bernard brown

MY dear rusting diamond,
Who are you trying to fool,
You say you fall in love fast,
But all you do is use i love you as a tool,
Mining through the tunnels of my heart,
Digging for silver but always finding gold,
Always leaving holes and smiling while it falls apart,
Taking flight as my gates unfold,
My dear rusting diamond,
Did you know that diamonds can't rust,
Therefore you're love is fake,
Shivering and dying while it turns to dust,
Done listening to your lies,
I learn from my mistakes,
I hope memories of you don't die,
So I won't have anymore heart ache
