Poem – “Emerald”

Emerald

I will always dream about you
Gilded, shining beyond my reach
A human embodiment of the moon
Eclipsing the sun and his joys
Infusing eyes with the emerald of envy

I can’t say you’re heroic
I can’t even say you mean well
So fearsome I can’t stop your image
A jewel set permanently in my dreams
