when i go

When I go, bury me with nothing but my own skin.
I spent far too many days trying to outrun this thing called mine. 

So if I set myself into your arms would you hold me like the Earth, quietly? 

I am yours. Give me a field, give me a big sky. A mountain.
Give me your mouth. 

I’m just looking for a quiet place that I could die inside of.
