The Death of a Ruby
The glittering stone now lies shattered
Upon the cold earth... and there it glows
Devoid of life, yet still enamoured.
Thundering, and hurtful were the last blows.
A heart still beats, but waning is the light.
There she came, and filled my heart with warmness.
She seemed so beautiful... so pure, so bright.
Yet she hid herself under a cloak of darkness.
Darkness can fade, but lost is my way.
Never again will I witness the brilliance of that light.
I can finally give in to the eternal pain
Of helplessness. Now, I must give in to plight.
And the red stone ceases to glow, the heart stops beating
Its race interrupted, its love now without a goddess.
And the now-fading light reminds me of fleeting
Illusions and fantasies, of a long-lost happiness.
