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
