Diamonds Aren't Forever

She was a beautiful woman

said the painting of her on the bedroom wall

She was a talented musician

said the awards on display in the halls

Many adored her

said the endless letters from people across the country

She lived alone now

said the half empty master bedroom

There was a fight

said the two holes in the door

She was distressed

said the tear stained pillowcase

She no longer cared about her career

said the instruments coated with dust

She didn’t care about anything anymore

said the unclean house

She just wanted her sadness to end

said the last note on her desk
