In The Desert

Wandering through the desert dunes,
Winds shifting the sands,
Making roads with its hands;
I burned for water,
As the sun burned my shadow,
And dust felted my mouth,
While heat turned me hollow -

Mirage teased my eyes,
Sought more water for tears,
Yet I walked on for years,
I broke the silence
And howled at the moon
I was swallowed by darkness
A moment too soon.
