Silver Tongue

My silver tongue burns with the whispers I won't let through.

I wait, still in the spot I haven't moved from in hours,

Hoping my words aren't salt in an open wound.

My voice light like a feather, my words heavy like a sand bag.

Leaves rustling in the wind make my milky breath quiet and unheard.

    Wow intense in metaphor and great similes. Poetic and has a solitary musing tone. Kudos.
