Treasure Island

Unintelligible Susurration


Sapphires


Now up close
I decided
to sneak a peek
and I was in awe
as I was proved wrong.

His eyes were like
the beautiful green sea
whose waters
decieve the eyes of many
including my own.

I had thought
they were emerald gems
in that treasure I unearthed
so many months ago.

They were actually
sorts of mesmerizing
deep blue gems called sapphires
that gleamed in their radiance
as they caught the sun's rays.

I couldn't help but stare
as the sapphires
were present before me.
It was all I could do
to suppress my intentions
of grabbing them
and declaring them mine.

Then they disappeared
into a cave just as quickly
as they had appeared
when the wind blew them along
in my path.

I tried chasing after them
but after successfully catching
the pair of gems,
I found they were just
blue gems
and not at all sapphires.

My delight dissipated
and I trudged into a corner
of the caliginous cavern
to wait for the sapphires
to appear once more.

Days came and went.
It was my time to leave.
I was hesitant at first
because I wanted a glimpse
of the gems once more
but my time had come
to return to reality
and leave fantasy behind.

I never did see
those precious sapphires
in the days that followed.
All I can do now is pray
that one day they will
come to me
when I least expect it.
