Artistic Challenge Poem, Ruby

Ruby was, Ruby is

Ruby is my stone, Ruby was my love
I didn't pick her, Ruby picked moi
Ruby was keen on me when I was young
Not old in years, but older than her years
We'd known each other, it seemed a long while
Then that night, one that boys do remember 
Ruby's gone away, no way I'll find her
Though Ruby picked me, I didn't pick her
She left a rock, rock no one else can have
Placed near my heart I keep it there for her

I think deep red ruby is perfect for this tale and the perfect camouflage to hid in the heart. Nicely Jim

A heart as cold as ruby would be the perfect place..

One of my favorite teenage songs ~ Dion and the Belmonts. Memories ... "Now I love this girl I said-a Ruby is her name .. when this girl looks at me she just sets my soul aflame"

I love that color...and that ruby picking you instead ~ A sentimental write and I did read that you know no one named Ruby, smiles ~

I wouldn't have known this really if I hadn't gone to the exhibit - but Minerals are different than gemstones. :) But don't worry - you didn't know. - and a poet can kiss and tell - it's all about how we write about it - no need of names - :) I will be doing a prompt next month on the gemstones and jewelry I photographed.
