Emerald And Black Diamond - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

black diamonds
they sparkle almost
reluctantly

someone who loves
you to the core
but fails to express it
all to you

emerald
they have to be deeper
than grass

and they need to sparkle too

a tall order on both
solidly sealed mouths

if the latter
could give its
transparency
to the diamond

and the diamond
its solidity
to the emerald

there we would walk
down the aisle
cheerful with love

unconditioned
