40 (who?)
I want my silver back,
I need to melt it down and forge a new connection
With someone else.
I want all the precious bits of myself
that I so willingly quarried for you.
I want my silver back.
Weird title huh? It comes from the phrase "Always the silver, never the gold" if that helps.

The really sad thing about this poem is that it's totally untrue.

My English is not really good enough to leave a critique, but I still would like to say something.

I really like how you use sliver and gold. It's quite clever. I will try to explain this as best as I can in English, but basically even if I gave something precious to someone I ended up hating, I still wouldn't want it back, because that leaves space for new things, better things, like a dandelion growing in the quarry. :) I dunno if that made sense, but I'd rather have a few small dandelions than old silver (Unless it's literal silver and dandelions. MUHNEHS! YESH!)
:tighthug: you are so kind. Thank you so much!! <3

This is quite a beautiful concept. I really like your use silver and gold here. :)

I'd like my silver back, but at the same time I don't. Those pieces of myself I've shared with others were given in love. I'd rather not tarnish that with hate, especially for something I can never take back.
Some people didn't deserve it in the first place though

That's the worst part. You can't always tell... or if you can, you choose to ignore it. :(

This poem strikes true for me, but I will admit: being part of the Common-wealth does have its benefits :D!

I love this. Recollecting your pieces from a broken connection to form them into something new.
