an onyx
deep and dark
a million threads
of your midnight hair

two sapphires
your eyes
precious celestials
shining stars

three rubies
soul's desire
bleeds, gushes crimson
hearth on fire

four jaspers
shared secrets
whispered in forests
brooding, intense

five opals
your freckles
prism of light
micro hearts in flight

six amethysts
every kiss
bruises and breathes
craving another hit

This is part of a collection of poems I wrote in 2015. Each was inspired by a song. I have republished a few of them here in their entirety.
