Oh Jadeite?


By Gita Toronjil-Lee


Kunzite likes

little boys with green eyes;

Nephrite little girls

with eyes blue.

Zoisite gazes

in bluish-gray hazes;

and Jadeite looks for… who?


Is it the Queen

with eyes serpentine?

Is it Nephrite-sama tall?

Is it the youma child

Sea-eyes showing love wild?

Does he like any at all?


Kunzite enjoys

orange-haired boys;

Nephrite has eyes for

the redhead.

Zoisite lingers

on white hair in his fingers;

Jadeite’s true feelings seem dead.


Does he like girls

With blond tresses, no curls?

Or maybe with raven-black hair?

Does he go for the ones

with their hair up in buns?

Is he even able to care?


Kunzite is fond of

Pretty ones to love;

Nephrite finds hope

in a girl’s heart.

Zoisite keeps dear

stoics who hold him near;

and no-one of Jadeite is part.


Does he prefer to control

the vulnerable?

Does he like those who are strong?

Girl, boy, or other –

Who’d he choose for a lover?

Must he make us wonder so long?


Even the Queen cruel

Has someone to make her fool,

Hair short and jet-black,

Eyes azure.

But Jadeite, blonde blue-eyes

and a skill for disguise

has closéd and locked love’s door.



Author’s Note:  Another no comment, save that I am aware of the possible sticky grammar spot in the first stanza.  It wouldn’t have rhymed otherwise!  Sue me!  (and if I think of something better, I’ll change it.)  And also that I meant “serpentine” to mean “snake-like”, even if that’s not the exact definition.


…oh, and one more thing.  Jadeite may not have any sort of definite love life per se, but if his seiyuu’s single and ever interested in an American teenager who doesn’t speak his language but worships his singing voice and his laugh, he can have my number any day!
