The Desert's Pulse Vol.1

Updated on April 7, 2013

Freedom amongst the rock and sand

The hiss

Of a diamondback

The rattle of his cousins

The bite of a predator

The blood of its pray

Feast before famine

The dry mouths cry out to me

restless and thirsty


For someone

To stop and see


Awake before detained

I become awake
By the absence of light
If ever i feel alive
It's only by the light
Inside my mind

When sheltered inside
You'll never realize 
Your mediocre sight
Is all that you will ever see

Only I
Can tare the ground 
From beneath me

Every day 
The mornings steal back
From me
The things the nights give
To set me free  

The time to live is now

The uncertainty

In the adventure

The breathless moments

Dancing around the flames

No need to breathe

Dropping to the ground

To touch the earth

Lift off

Throwing yourself into a spin

Scenes shift

Feeling yourself

Cradled in the hands of the universe


With a pen to the page


By the light

Of a cigarette's ember

A little fire!
A little fire! | Source
