Being lonely is one of the most desolate experiences of all. Especially when alongside somone who should be looking out for you…
Burning wasteland of parched sand
shivers under the sun-scoured sky.
Eyes bleed useless tears looking
for help – no one ever comes here.
Just when the aching emptiness is
vast enough to swallow dust storms,
an oasis of Love blooms on the horizon…
miraculous pool shaded by lush bushes.
You run towards it, maddened by
the moist promise of tenderness…
It shimmers – a lover’s breath away from
And then blinks out.
