A Gemstone Burning Bright

A Gemstone Burning Bright

Your beauty runs deep
Under flesh and devotion,
It’s a perpetual spirit
O’ ceaseless, gentle emotion.
Dare no shadow to touch
The interminable pyre,
Or extinguish the flames
Of your heart’s burning fire.
And this is no lamentation
Nor beholding to woe,
These words a celebration
Of the hearts that we grow.

Yet I ask is my mind still a mystery?
Do I approach in your darkest fantasy?

You’ve laid waste to pretence,
Stripped bare my soul’s sheath.
Now glance with new eyes
Care for what’s underneath.
It is yours my angel
And for as long as I live,
(I’ll resign my last heartbeat
To see your world give).
So when I am weary
Or cruel torment seeps through,
If fear seeks to smite us
My heart remains true.

And I carry this love like an invisible shield,
Your eyes see my soul; there is nothing concealed.

Gemstone is your name,
Befitting all that you are.
A precious sapphire gleaming,
Brighter than a star.
The fragility of the stone,
Rises and then subsides.
But its beauty runs ever deeper,
And for an eternity resides.

And as for our ages apart my love
Drawing their meaningless scars,
I have seen our future together -
It’s at peace amongst the stars.

Yours is a perpetual spirit, which I’ll never seek to tame.
But raise up the precious Gemstone, and let it glint in flame!
