The Diamond

The pressure is great.
Expectation-compressor,
the diamond that
can’t wait

to be…

Made…
Make?

Did this
fine break
appear
when I
pressed
my mistake?

Compressed Happiness.

Love is not made
like diamonds
in some hot,
white-knuckled
cage.

Pressure only
creates hardness,
shards, sharpness,
but, vented

steam,

condensation,
breathing, hot,
brings the boiling heat
for the lovely things

that steam

brings.
