Desert


The sun

Mocks and teases, brings one to their knees

Licks the face with its fiery tongue

Burns, comforts,

Warmth.

Alone

Watched the essence of life evaporate

In the infernal, dreary fog of the mind.

Behind

The glazed eyes, the words, the smiles

There hides an emptiness that words cannot define.

The distance

Grows, familiarity fades

Hostility proves a truth that the mind abhorred

Tenderness fades in to the distance, the heart

Squeezes and releases, reminding oneself

That it is merely a muscle and can be squished

To a pulp in careless hands.

Waiting, patience

Liquefaction of the insides

And gradually,

Eyes

Dry up of tears

Blood rushes out.
