a jewel to keep

By , Bloomfield Hills, MI

your eyes
strike me as
odd jewels
i can’t look away from.

your gaze
stripped away my
innocence

giving me
thoughts i never
knew i could have.

when you hold my hand
my body shudders.

your hand is warm
and hardened from
work in the gardens.

i think of your knees
in the dirt
and your hands
gently ripping
weeds.

i think of the day when
you kneel to me
and give me
a jewel to keep.
