Diamond tears that graze her perfect face
What has the world done to you
The sparkle the shine once in her mind
Slide down trembling lips to polluted grounds

Golden blood spills from her wrist
As her teeth clench to contain her screams
A silent world is too loud to hear her pleads
Words to actions yet nothing sets her free

Silver knifes puncture her heart
They can never touch her soul
Leaving the world behind
My ultimate treasure flies
I watch with Diamond tears
Burning in my eyes

At first when I read this I was like okay another sad poem. Then when I go to the second stanza I was like okay this is good. My favorite line I watch with diamond tears. Such a good use of imagery. Suggestion: use more imagery cause your good at that.

This is such an amazing poem. Even though me, as a reader, didn't know what was happening at times, it's very beautiful. I like the comparing her blood to gold and her tears to diamonds, I never would've thought of that. I almost cried at the end. I think you accomplished what you were going for. Good job and keep writing :)))))
