He says I sparkle, he says I shine, but only because he is mine.

The dullest stone in the dirt, broken smashed, raw and hurt.

With tender eyes and a loving heart, he bent down and picked me up.

Polished and cleaned with loving care. A diamond in the rough, one not to share.

But the gem I am sparkles only under his light, a radiant glow that lasts all night.

A treasured piece that he holds close, for I am the one he loves the most.

:wow: Wow!
I really like this poem :heart:
Makes me think-to trully love someone and to be trully loved is to see the diamond in the rough. The diamond that still has it's worth, no matter the person and their doings.

Dear, not only the ones who love you will see your worth.. If we ourselves let it loose, there is the possibility that all will see the star that burns within each and every one of us. Very few people have the gift to see the treasure held within a jagged shell without it being shown to them first.. I still love this though. It makes me feel hopeful that someone will see through the rough surface and see all that is bright in me one day :)

Aw I know what you mean, mostly the person who couldn't see the star was myself, but gladly I've found someone who seen it long before I and wants to show me.
I'm glad you do, and always stay hopeful because of course someone will see it, trust me :)

Yes.. It's true that we often are the ones who doubt ourselves. Sometimes we might even abhor the thought that someone would think us worthy to be praised and such. But really, what we all really need is the right push to see our own potentials. :meow: Hehe many people have tried- but I guess I'm still waiting for the one who actually gets through to me :XD: My "jagged shell" of a head seems so darn thick! :giggle:

Oh believe me I have, I've been told it over and over again, and I told him to shut up because it just seemed wrong and a lie to me, thankfully he didn't :)
We do, we really do, for myself I think everything I do is never good enough, but once I hear it means something to someone it keeps me doing what I love.
Haha aww I'm sure they will see through it! :D

Ahaha! I know that feeling. The feeling of being unworthy :XD: Sigh- I often wonder why I can't be like other people.. why I can't accept myself the way other people seem to have no problem with doing themselves.. but I- yeah, I guess- Still waiting for that push. This helped though- seemed to drill a few centimeters through my skull. :D And I really thank you for that :huggle:

Well there's being like others and being awesome the way you are, if we where all the same, we'd be a rather boring species, I consider myself lucky I'm not the same, the good and the bad traits, they make us who we are :)
You will get it, hopefully sooner rather than later, aw you are very welcome! I'm glad I could help, and if you want to talk again I'll be here :) :hug:

ehehehe oh don't get me wrong, I don't want to be like others (pffftt I'm limited edition! I have no duplicate- nor do I want one!:XD:). It's just, it seems so natural for others to accept and not doubt themselves. I want to be able to do that- in fact, I think I DO actually do that, to some degree. Just not.. totally. Wholly. I still have reservations if I would even WANT to accept every bit of me. That.. can't be right, right? So.. yeah. Conflicted here. Hahaha! :D Thanks! I'll take you up on the offer someday :meow: Make that a two-way offer. I'm always willing to listen :)
