Diamonds last forever...but your a rhinestone

The shadow overcasts,
My midnight sky;
The shadow of one man’s,
Heartfelt cry.
He screams, and he screams
Hoping someone will hear
He screams and he screams
“Come help me! Anyone near?”
You lie to yourself.
Walk away;
Pretend to be gone.
The truth never exists,
In the devil’s spawn.

Yet he screams and he screams,
So you never forget.
And he screams and he screams;
So you feel the regret.
He continues to scream.
So he hear him in your sleep.
And he screams and he screams
His chills
They only reap.
And he screams and he screams,
Then silence comes about.
No longer does he scream does he scream,
Because words no longer come out.

I liked the theme and the basic idea of the whole poem, but I don't quite understand the title...plus, the "your" should be "you're". Hope it helps!
