This Girl is a Gem

She plumbs the depths of broken heart and weeps
Deep words that prise her reader’s mind awake
From time to time her heart has whimsy leaps
From flight of fancy soon returns the ache
Still words pour out, of love and gloom and hope
Sometimes she seems so “out there” in her love
With open arms she seeks more words to cope
But then she settles as a peaceful dove
Stand back a step as she’s uncorking pain
And look through rooms and signs and open books
Her tears aren’t seen when dancing in the rain
Not everything we see is as it looks
With lucky dips and crystal flowing creeks
I wish her all the life and love she seeks

And,

Inspired by the words she shares so free
Her train of thought can set a mind aflame
And if you chance to wonder whom she be
“This girl is a Gem” contains her name :-)
