Waves Of A Desert (poem)

Waves of a desert

Calling me back

With name unfamiliar

I’m taken aback


I walk down the streets

I served faithfully

Each hunger now fed

Long needs laid to bed

New lights up ahead

Why me

This moment

This dream


Look all around

Capture the peace of it

Dance through the breath of it

Wander the length of it

A world well woven

By me

This moment

A dream


Then wave upon wave

Memories returned

Challenging my eyes

Questioning the whys

Replacing truth with lies

Oh bed

Warm covers

Take me


Cruel waves upon waves

Tearing the cloth of it

Stripping the mask of it

Denying the ways of it

Riddle’s Raging wrath

Of this

Waking up

To what


As the madness fell

I wondered just who was I

But a small piece of sand

With little command

For ways still at hand





Song of a desert

Calling me back

To things long forgotten

Just for a time

Martin, I know when I look back at things in the past it is like being in a place between dreams and reality.
