Diamonds in December
How can heaven feel so far away?
Instead of joy with everyone else you're alone on the floor crying diamonds in December
Empty and hollow...
Nothing but screaming on the inside...
Something's missing...
And you just don't know anymore...
The screaming won't stop...
No one hears it but you...
And the arctic wave is howling outside along with it...
The wind is so strong you start to tremble along with the house...
You've never felt winter like this before...
Is it just you or does the sky look sadder than usual?
You're crying diamonds in December...
And there's a harsh winter screaming on the inside of you...
You'd give anything...
Anything to quiet the winter on the inside...
Anything to stop your heart from screaming...
Anything to stop the diamonds from falling...
The happiest day of the year...
But instead...
You're on the floor crying diamonds in December
Dreaming of death
I've never felt winter like this before...
How can heaven feel so far away?
How can this be real?
You're crying diamonds in December
You ask for death from a God you don't even believe in...
Instead of death...
He just bottles diamonds in December
And listens...
How can Diamonds in December feel so graceful?

It is almost as if you are describing death to me.  I love the poem.  Damon

Oh wow. I absolutely love your last line. The whole poems easily describes how most people where I live feel in the winter. They say the grey and whiteness of it starts to get to you, wears on you, wears you out and just eats at you. For people who already felt that way, I can see how it would intensify it into a feeling of absolute hopelessness and loneliness.


But the second to last stanza is among the most beautiful to me. I love how he listens :)

I also like this one it is often difficult to feel the gifts of December.  When depression hit you can't feel or see anything else, even the wonder of "Diamonds in December".
