His Desert (poem)

Updated on February 4, 2013

Upon a bleak dry desert without this

By promise in the wind he was now drawn

Sheer madness grants him strength to carry on

Perhaps the next horizon will bring bliss


Except for this all other needs are gone

His quest for this all pains he could dismiss

And without this so endless is abyss

He must have this to greet another dawn


So cruel the fate which chose to torment him

So endless are the heartbeats of the day

So empty was that reason which now slips


For as that dream which makes his mind now swim

His spring of hope is not that far away

For here again a kiss comes from her lips
