aurum

with gold around your neck,

you might not notice yet
but there’s a way things get done
won’t be easy or fun
look around your surroundings
see if you had ever found me
just hiding in plain sight
in broken quarries at night
shimmer away all of my fears
reveal my spectral flaws
carat’s on your skin
become even more pure
spiking in value
when i’m at an all time low
receive my recollection
memories of yesteryear
silver is outdated
tarnished and faded
throw it away
stop being frustrated
with how it has to go
if your fingers find a new way
into my heart
leave my blood diamonds alone
let your emerald eyes blind me
your beauty has a strangling hold
i just might melt to white gold
