Gold

gold

Deep dark brown

Sorrow twisted through

Yet full of riches

And misses

All for you

 

The picture frame

Reveals to you

Who you really are

But you turn away

And slam the door

 

Golden house

Golden clothes

Golden desk

Drenched in gold

 

Shimmer now

Sparkle then

Sadness now

Smiles then

 

Oh where did you go?

When did you decide

That life was difficult?

 

Oh please leave this place

Return to what you were

Let your eyes twinkle with your face

 

Bloodshot eyes

Greasy hair

Bluish lips

Fingertips

Dirty because you don’t care

 

Paper bills

Everywhere

Diamond rings

The little things

Yet it’s not fair

 

Golden house

Golden clothes

Golden desk

Drenched in gold

 

Shimmer now

Sparkled then

Sadness now

Smiles then

 

Oh where did you go?

When did you decide

That life was difficult?

 

Oh leave this place

Return to what you were

Let your eyes twinkle with your face
