Waiting In The Desert
Image by Brad Garber
Sunlight beats on my cheeks,
Sand burns my flesh,
Wind whips against my body,
And yet the field is barren.
I lay in desolation,
My limbs impaired.
I cannot move,
Sight and touch
Remain my only senses,
My only freedoms.
Abandoned, my heart is left to weather
Seclusion from the joy given to others,
But hope stays within my shell.
Someone, I pray, will happen upon my corpse.
A traveler in the desert,
A gypsy in the night,
A wanderer who, too, knows suffering.
One day my desire shall arrive,
With love to meet my eyes,
With a kiss to give me breath,
So life may surge through my veins
