I am the necklace
you never wear.
You stuff my golden chain
inside the darkness
of your drawer
and neglect to set my sapphire
to your neck
to gleam, to shine
in fulfilling light.

With delight you took me
but after
that you never wore me
I think on what I’d ask
if you would only

Who are you to condemn
my illumination
to shadows?
Why may others
with less brilliance
than I
stand a chance
while I remain

The house is sold.
You’ve moved away,
and left me
I cling to desperate hope
that some one
will find me
since you

That necklace is seriously bitter. But the poem is beautiful and well-written.

Wow.  Have I ever felt like that before.  This was downright amazing; I could feel all the emotions.  I didn't really see the necklace as a necklace though.
