Yes, ‘precious’ is an adjective. It describes a thing, person or place. But every once in an eternity, you get to meet a person who manifests this intangible thing, a person who enters your life with a strange audacity. Fears and habits that bad experiences have scarred you with, this person just shows up and gets them to comply, like stubborn primary school kids obedient from the promise of P.E.
I wrote this for those who have such a person in their lives and those hoping to meet them. Do not settle for less. Don’t just go with him because you think he might be the last page of a book you don’t even know half of! Don’t just commit to her because ‘every hole is a hole’. You should let the size of your dream determine the quality of the person you settle with. And when your dream is big enough, you realize that you cant but hold up for a certain kind of precious. Enjoy.
Precious ~the noun.
I haven’t written a poem for you in a while
And it’s not due to a lack of inspiration
You bring plenty of that
It’s the difficulty to contain
The raging bliss that comes with you.
