Gem hunter

Let me look into your eyes

To get the comfort of drowning

Once again

In that deep blue, ocean

Or is it blue deep, ocean

Your flickering eye-lids

Getting confused

Finding my eyes so near

Inches away

My hungry eyes wish to dive in yours

Looking for valuable gems

I need those gems

Transparent gems of promises

Blue gems of love

Yellow gems of friendship

Maroon ones for passion

But my eyes got lost

In the maze of your confused eyes

Burning objects crisscrossed

Confusing me

What were those things?

Why did they not allow me in

Beyond that firewall

I couldn’t find any promise

Or passion

Even friendship

Alas there was no love to be found

I am not a gem collector

I am hungry for them

I need your eyes to say something

Give me a faint hint

A little hope if they could

Something like, “try next time”

Or, “of course it is possible”

“I can’t say it right now”

I feed on such flimsy lies

For the hunger of my heart

For the sake of my survival

For the sake of my sanity
