Jewel

Reflected heart
your beat, shifted
to a new tune

Unreachable jewel
“Thou liest!”

For when you shone your
soul upon me
I, reached out
only to find
the crown empty
the skies grey
and my heart
bereft.

I care not

There are more jewels in a river
of solitudes
so fear not, I say, fear not
for the sun shines in each raindrop
and each raindrop
nourishes
