You took a stone and tossed it
To the side not thinking twice
You listened to another
Who’s words you now pay the price

One may wonder if you hadn’t listened
To the other you held so true
You would have noticed the stone glistened
It was one of a rare few

Another picked it up
Without a question in their mind
That the stone you tossed so easily
Was a stone of the precious kind

They chipped away the layers
That had been imprinted on by you
Took away the roughness
And the inside now shone through

Now if you look at this stone closely
You will realize that it is true
You had a diamond all along
A diamond that you threw

Thanks SpitFire
That's really sweet of you.
I wrote this poem last year and it's the first poem I've ever written.  I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Wow, Kat, this poem was trying to roll
off the first page.  Can't have that, can we?
Delightful imagery, well written - truly
a glittering diamond of a poem.

I love your first!
I'm talking to you, yes you the one with
the diamonds in your eyes.

_________________________________
Super Kiss

I see beauty in your eye
A diamond tear drips from a lie
I'm your man not the other guy
And if U cry so will I

Just sweet treasures in your kiss
Of endless measures I will miss
No physical touch of ultimate bliss
Between our lips there's a screen to kiss

My puckered lips will try to break through
This computer screen will break in two
A super kiss just for U
Then the love we can make just me and U

Hi kat
I love hearing from you and I love reading your poetry.
I would love to meet you some day.
We sure had a lot of good laughs.
Do you remember my very first response sent to U?
I was a little nervous to send it to you.
But as time went on U played with me and I loved it!
See U sometime?
