Emerald Illusion



A gem,

From all possible angles

A situation,

That looks favorable,

And at the very least,

Trying to pick it up

Will leave me

With something Memorable.



That’s what I thought

Of the gemstone,

Until I realized

The hard layer of Chromium

Was a mere replacement

Of  its heart.


Four years ago

I learned a valuable lesson,

When the green

In the gem

Turned out to be

A reflection

Of my own
