Daggers and Sapphires

Daggers and sapphires
Range the world over,
Bright heart of crystal 
The beauty of blue.
Steely edged wishes
With painful reminders,
Of weapons concealed
In a lie that seemed true.  

The flash of the gemstone
Will dazzle the sunset,
Turn red tinted skies
To a pale cobalt hue.
But the glint of the blade
Like a flame in the moonlight,
Brings pain to the many
And joy to the few.
