{August 6, 2013}   Quicksand Shivers

scarf
you drag me under so easy
even with your eyes closed
but you’d rather watch
so you gaze steel and i sink
into the quicksand
i spiral
helpless to the pull when it sucks me under
seeping through my skin
i absorb you sponge-like and thirsty
greedy for more
i stockpile bits of you, hidden treasure
for those stretches of silence
there to remind me i didn’t dream you
it makes the sinking that much better
and brings on the shivers
waiting
