Diamond In The Sand

by Gem   Aug 31, 2007

Finding love in this lonely world
Was like finding a needle in a haystack
Discovering a diamond in the sand
Nailing jelly to a tree
Or so it seemed...

Something that just wasn't worth the effort
The countless disappointments
The tears...
The hurt...
Weighing down the fragile heart
When something that felt like love
Turned out to be a sham
A red herring

Love was something that was only found in the movies
In books
In the imagination...
A sort of pipe dream

But even pipe dreams can become a reality
Love can find you when you least expect it
When you cease looking
It springs out of nowhere
Like a long lost friend
A best friend
A lover

You find that needle in the haystack
And when you do, you realise it's something special
The real thing
Something worth waiting for

I found my diamond in the sand
And it's the most valuable diamond i could ever hope to own
It's you

    At first, before reading, I thought that the poem would have odd flow in some areas. I was shocked after finishing it. Not really for the fact that the flow was off anywhere, but for the fact that it complimented the poem in a very nice way. I think this is a cute poem Gem. You tend to do that with even your sad poems. (Maybe not so much cute with them, but rather cleverness). I enjoy that about your writing. You can tell that you have an upbeat personality, and that's always a good thing.

    Aw sweet

    "I found my diamond in the sand
    And it's the most valuable diamond i could ever hope to own
    It's you"

    What a lovely way to sum it up! Such a beautiful poem, very truthful though. Although it can feel like its never gonna happen i believe that people are not destined to be alone. Although reminding myself of that can seem to be a bit of a challenge hee hee. Lovely poem, a beautiful little dedication to your love.
