The Jewels in My Throat

Longing has crystallized in my

throat

hard blue star sapphires

multi-faceted  rubies

tear shaped diamonds

ropes of pearls

that threaten to choke me

riches I cannot spend

blood gems

polished by the fire in my belly

passion and rage

that always leaves me hungry

hollow

always wanting

more
