The Thirst (poem)

Updated on September 2, 2012

I had a dream nay desert without you

With endless sands and all was colored grey

Confused alone and hope so far away

So meaningless horizons I now knew

-

No sun no moon no purpose for the day

And empty winds assured me I was through

Then echoed world around me lies were true

Forgotten thirst was calling my dismay

-

A shadow came its hand an outstretched knife

I know your thirst and this will end your plight

I took the tool and all that it implied

-

Then from a memory came song of life

I love you dear a distant spring a light

I drank the blessing of you by my side

      This poem is eerie, M and so is David Bowie's song. I love the line "And empty winds assured me I was through." The imagery of this is awesome.
