She gave away her heart like broken pieces of raw diamond in a jewelry store.  He’d saved up enough over the years to buy the ultra-diamond.  The diamond of all diamonds.  He wasn’t looking for just a piece.  He’d sacrificed long and hard for the whole thing.  She watched him in anticipation as he walked throughout the jewelry store.  Certain that he’d choose the bigger, prettier, unbroken diamond that glittered and shone masterfully.  Wholly.  She was surprised when he picked her up and paid for her outright.  With the contents of his satchel…

Where he kept

All of her

Broken

Pieces.

you. you are a diamond. in the rough. but. a diamond. sho-nuf! some. will look at you. seeing only your brokenness. one. thee one. will know your wholeness. giving credit. to what it took. to break you. be a gem.
