Precious Gems

A Precious gem An enemy and a friend The beginning of the end A Moonstone Made of flesh built of bone To the young and being grown A Ruby red Alive and dead The written and the read An Emerald green The hidden and the seen What is to come and what has already been A Pearl white The day into the night To the left and from the right A Diamond shines Yours and mine The straight edge and a cursive line A Jewel forever Now to Never Last my eternity Where we go Who we know Never my destiny The Stone lasts The spell casts Forever is gone in a day As history fades And future weighs It all just burns away All the ashes All the caskets Left to feed the grey All the dreams The glitter gleams Crushed and blown away A bitter bomb Here and gone All the songs resounding with the BOOM The children will cry To say goodbye To the golden afternoons It never will it never was The only thing that ever is Is what we are of Be it hate Be it great Be it all of love What I am is what i do When it ends The do is through So DO Do and Do and Do Until your doings through

So much expressed here, and each thought holds depth- such meaning. It is a lifetime of moments- or so it seems. Your thoughts curl around me gently. ~ Brandy
