Waves Of A Desert (poem)

Updated on May 2, 2015

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

Nameless

Challenges

Beyond

-

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.
