Endless Facets

The endless facets
that make up
the gem of you,
I explore leisurely,
attracted to
each sparkle
and groove,
each shadow
in every nook
and cranny—

your cranium,
your body,
the white light
of your soul
where all the colors
combine
to illuminate
my way home.

I touch each
part of you,
and the heat
of me
melts the precious
colors,
and I paint myself
with all of that
rarity
you possess
and offer

that remained
hidden
beneath the
surface stone,
having waited
all your life
for me to expose
with these hands
of my own,

the only ones
meant
to excavate
your soul
and for you to
unearth mine,
so as one
we metamorphose,

blue zircon
and emerald
eyes
becoming
Love’s new
birthstone,
dispelling every lie
we once believed
that we were
merely
coal.
