Golden Liquid

A little poem from my random Bursts of Words collection.

I drink of your sweetness 

Rapture in a glass

Glowing and decadent, you dare to tame me

I pour truths under your spell

I slumber by your compulsion

And awake none the wiser to your wises

If only I could break the spell 

Alas, there is no cure, only a battle I am not ready to fight

So you claim me nightly

Soothe my wild thoughts until they are too hazy to see

I lose myself in your golden light

And I drown in the moment of peace you offer from the war in my mind

The golden liquid tames me, calms me, steers me from the truth.
