Gold

by remembertoexhale

Every word from you is like gold, filling my mouth
sliding all over my body, caressing my lungs
slipping through my fingers
and my mind slips away with it
rolling, turning, getting lost
and the few words get less
and I am scrambling
for little drips of that precious metal
that shines and glitters
but you make me dig deep for it
deeper and deeper
until I lose parts of myself in the shafts
looking for that glittery light in the depths of the tunnels of you
and I can hardly breathe
and I am growing weary
but I am greedy for your gold
I am greedy for your love.
