There is a soothing pool,
Which with the driest dirt,
No man shall break its rule,
It stands to be assert,
As outlaws start to drool,
When these men hurry first,
They encounter their duel,
A man with crimson shirt,
To man he is no fool,
They try to make sure he is hurt,
By using deadly tools,
Some disguise to a friendly flirt,
To try to become cool,
But he does not attempt to lurk,
Cause they were very cruel…

In the desert -

I want to see your dancing eyes again
As they get lost in mine
Locked in a silent gaze
Transmitting emotions
Words cannot describe
Yet we try
And fail
And try again
To express how two hearts
Can be one
Like this
A fleeting kiss
Is all I see, my mirage
In the desert -
Is that really you?

A touchable divinity,
A scalable infinity,
The clay of which you are comprised
Was gathered in serpent's eyes.

In fightable solitude,
Dancing with dots of blue,
The very thing from which you ran
Protected your feet from the hot sand.

Inspired by Steve Tiffany's writing style.
I feel deserted in this desert of loneliness,
Atul 'Drona' Kaushal

I feel deserted in this desert of loneliness,
Even though several people surround me,
Just lonely sand anywhere the eye can go.

I was aimless if not for your thought dear,
Your presence in my daily life's beautiful,
Like an oasis which is needed in a desert..

I am valuable for you & similarly you are,
Invaluable for one another we're lifelong,
Igniting warmer the feelings kissing lips...

May 29

there are no tall oak trees
or gray rainy days to distract from
just flashing smiles
and intertwined fingers
dancing in warmth.
sunshine souls made honest by the heat,
I want to spend my summertime
absorbing so much Vitamin D
that you can swallow me
like your morning pill.

Desert ensued

Things grew dry
Desert ensued
And I wanted an oasis,
Pleasure of sitting
By a pool
In the arid air.
It was comfortable enough
To keep on,
Legs in rhythm
The exhausting heat
And friction
Became too much and
You stopped to rest.
And soon blood lept
From my body
And muscles felt sore.
I collapsed in the sand.
And you hugged me anyway.

Under the desert sky,
Kelbi Afkari

Under the desert sky,
We shared our souls
As the hours passed by.

Looking up at the stars,
Embracing one another
in intertwined arms.

For, to you I gave a piece of me
And to me was given ecstasy.

We stayed up all night talking:
About our lives, past events,
And the things now occurring.

Though it felt like an illusion,
Your hand in mine assured me
It was no mere delusion.

Your cheek, brushing gently against mine.
Eyes closed, we held each other
As if there were no time.

No time. No time.
Though t'were as if the world stood still
As we sat upon that hill,

Time was no longer suspended
As, with the sunrise,
Our dream ended.

The desert skies of royal hazey colors
Nicholas Kurtz

No one to talk too
My mouth is sore from being shut
My brain spinning with thought
I'd talk to the stars,
Even they didn't show up

The desert skies of royal hazey colors
New grounds for me
For others discovered

Through long plight before me
Spirits endlessly struggling

To bask
Under the hazey royal indigo
Desert skies

Enlightened wolves
Darkness despise

My love is like a desert flower, drying in the sun
2 days ago

My love is like a desert flower, drying in the sun
Then a drop of precious water comes, but one,
And at once life fills the plant, and color brightens blossom,
Green and luscious in a moment, my heart should be as light as balsam,
But I sewed a seed of fear, beside that seed of rose,
And every time a hydrant falls, that vine of fear grows,
It’s poisoned circles loop around my heart, try to keep my head from reeling,
But pain it only causes, increased unhappy feeling,
I put it there in hopes it would protect my soul,
Instead I find it makes an ever increasing hole,

This is desert living
katie pratt

Candle flicker

Keeps mosquitos away

The wind is picking up

No sound to be heard but paper crumpling rustle of aspens

A damn seagull squaks; only here 

This is desert living

Desert loving

We have a porch

It kind of feels like heaven

Just the moon and lamplights

And pajamas with no undergarments 
Citronella smell

Dry breeze

Skin no longer chapped

Weathered from my initiation 

During the apex of summer when I read outside at midnight
