A talisman, trinket
a precious thing
I hold too close to my heart
too scared to lose it
a pain too hard to bear
a minute of separation 
will bring me
centuries of pain
my welt soul
and suppurating life
will never heal again
clutching you too tight
as if the only bearer of light
and the sole messenger of luck
I never let it never separate from me
I wore you for good luck
A shiny gem
which bestows power on me
and lift the curse 
of feeling so lonely.
