Mine, Mine, Mine...and please, don't call me greedy

Darling, please, don’t call me selfish
but sometimes I’m not willing
to share your words
with anyone
so I lock them away
for my eyes only to read.
The heart is a gracious keeper.
Sometimes I feel
green-color greedy for your laugh-lines
where only I
want to kiss them
and run my fingers
across those curves
familiar only to me.
And when you are asleep
and I am not
I even want the silence that wraps us
to be mine
to fill with thoughts
