Advice To A Girl

Rating: 4.0
No one worth possessing
Can be quite possessed;
Lay that on your heart,
My young angry dear;
This truth, this hard and precious stone,
Lay it on your hot cheek,
Let it hide your tear.
Hold it like a crystal
When you are alone
And gaze in the depths of the icy stone.
Long, look long and you will be blessed:
No one worth possessing
Can be quite possessed.

The word possessed is a bit ambiguous here due to the so many meanings it suggests, and the truth of the statement can be debated. There is no spaces to enter a detailed explanation. This site does not allow it.
