Diamonds shimmer 
in the depths of the 
calmest pond.
I reach for one, 
but I can't touch.
Instead I create a current
and stir the murky depths 
Mud and clay 
cloud the once clear pool.
Only evidence is washed away 
in a roaring wave.

The wave descends 
and shatters the once still air
Into the voices 
of a thousand tiny angels,
Each one crying out 
for a lost soul to save.

As the river breaks 
into the ocean of dreams,
I stare and wonder 
in it's magnificence.
Dare I?
I stand at the banks

unnerved, yet intrigued 
as I decide
to cast away all 
that is required of me,
I dive into the howling waters
In search of the diamond I
couldn't see.

The raging subsides 
as the river claims 
yet another foolish lover.
And the pain subsides,
as the heart refuse to beat
