A diamond


Two sides of
the earth
two faces: romantic
darkness
and abundant light

one face for
all mankind
one face for
myself alone

two sides of a coin
four sides of a square

you demand that
i shall have only
one,

i'll say yes
in such a simple word

inside my heart
the words rumble
too many
to capture but only
one face?

in silence
i keep my fingers crossed
it is impossible

to one light
i glitter a thousand
times

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
