Ruby Red Fantasy

Updated on August 4, 2014

In July,

I was born with rubies in my eyes

and now I can’t find them.

But, I haven’t lost my sight.

I just fantasize

of rubies on my neck,

rubies on my wrist,

rubies on my fingers…

shit, I’ve got ruby red nails

on my finger tips.

I am a ruby red queen

in my ruby red dreams.

If diamonds are a girl’s best friend,

rubies are closer than kin.

I mean, closer than my mom

closer than my heart.

In a golden sea,

I float in a ruby red ark.

I will plot

until I touch them

and I will murder just to wear them.

I will confess a ruby red confession,

I’ve got a ruby red obsession.

Don't offer me help,

I don't operate with discretion.

I need it, want it, I got to have them

rubies wrapped around platinum

rubies wrapped around gold.

Give ‘em to me young.

I’ll cherish them when I’m old.

I just want to hold

a heavy ruby broach

close to my soul.

Actually, here is my soul.

How many rubies can I get for it?

I’m trembling.

I will sacrifice my man for them.

I’d lose my cool

and get reckless like an animal.

Put me in the zoo.

I’m a loose fool.

Put a ruby in front of me

and there’s no telling what I might do.

I remember the day we met,

as if an hour hasn’t passed.

It was the day I was born

that I learned rubies were

made to be worn.

If you think I’m a problem,

lock me in a ruby red cage

so I can die in a ruby infested daze.

Basically what I’m saying

is, I don't want flowers.

You better make sure

I’ve got rubies lining my grave.

      It's quite terrible how some people see rubies as more valuable than the human soul. When rubies do represent the heart, it is quite dangerous. a great one, Ryem!

      Exceptional poem! It takes on a whole new meaning to a person which rubies represent his heart.
