The Diamond In Your Eyes

Rubies, sapphires, and emeralds, gems of such great worth 
Gems beyond price and beauty from the bowels of the earth
Sought for and dreamed of, fought over and even died for
When all said and done just pieces of mineral from mother earths core...

Placed in gold and platinum settings, price beyond compare
Stored in vaults to precious are some, but still bits of mineral to be fair
Reds and greens, blues for sure, these gems stone are beauteous things
Nothing says I love you more, than gemstones set in golden rings.

For me these beauteous bits of glass that bedeck the bodies of some
Bought for gifts and treasured always, these little baubles of fun…
The best gemstone of all is ‘adamas’ or unbreakable from the ancient Greek
But it’s the qualities of this superlative gem, that is what I seek...

Its superlative physical attributes mean, it’s hard beyond compare
Allotrope of carbon spewed by volcanoes, and it is still rather rare
This gemstone which is a diamond, and guys this is the best surprise
I don't want even the remnant of a diamond, just the glint like diamond of love in your eyes…

    excellent Mandy, love how you've woven in the value aspect of these gems, a price that only people themselves place.. agaist the last line that brings it all back to the human element.. a wonderful poem, so much truth in every word... love the sentiment, of the whole poem....

    A nice, feminine homily on the intrinsic value of diamonds. I have to tell you that I think that the aesthetic appeal of the varnished stones is just as alluring to most women as the feigned love with which it is paired. Irrespective of my masculine opinion, your ideal is competently and artistically tendered. Nice, long end rhyme scheme. Enjoyed your wonderful poem!

    "I wouldn't want the gem, just the glint like diamond of love in your eyes" Great lines my friend. The essence of happiness lies in Love and not even in all the wealth of the world. But how many woman go for Love and how many for diamonds remains a puzzle always. Love and best wishes my friend Mandy...Ravindra
