Money

A Poem by Mr. Mills
"

A partnership poem shared between me and Dragonwing.

"

You, you took up root

When I was young I saw everyone wanted you

I didn’t understand until now

You consume me and I can’t resist


The more of you I have

The more of me I lose

The more I want to horde you

The more I love you


You took away my sanity

Slowly but surely

I had friends but you made me give them all up

I crave you, I curse you, I depend on you


I use you but you always come back

You consumed my life

I love you but I know you’re rancor

I live my life thinking you’re my goal


You make made me into something I wasn’t

You took my soul from me

You are the root of my evil

Now I know you are


After every part of me was gone

I came to finally realize what I was

My greed had consumed my entire soul

My soul was now owned
