If I.

If I.

A Poem by Kirsty Lee


If I wanted diamonds I would work the mines.

Cover myself in jewels and pretend to be divine.


If I wanted gold I would sell my soul.

And live ageless, alone and cold.


If I wanted fame I would deceit and slander.

Then drip myself with friends who just want the glamor.


If I wanted your love I would write a letter.

Set it on your grave and wait until winter.


If I didn't want to feel ageless and alone,

with hundreds of friends whom I don't know

and for ever day a different jewel to wear,

then I would have kept your heart

and treated it with care.

Wow, that is very good. That bluntness if your unique flavor. You have a great way of setting things up.
