bloody wine is sand slipping through fingers.
with so much space, deserts are never empty.
silence is sexy,
like raw flesh stretched over
thousands of switches.
modus operandi released
and the light bulbs are breaking,
now we will see if stars still shine.
The desert land
Stretches on like an endless sea
A vast chasm of nothingness and emptiness
And all that exists
Is the hot sanded wind
Crouched down in a ball
Loneliness is the only companion
To the desolation that has become life
Peering at the setting sun
Knowing the terrors of the night to come
The knife holding promises of peace
And it beckons for the warm flesh of serenity
And the blood of tranquility
Thoughts wander like grains of sand in the desert.
The Bible is my oasis in the drought.
I exhale my own mind
breathe in psalms and scriptures.
Fill my lungs with air of all godliness.
I surrender to a beautiful mystery.
Unknown yet sure.
Inexperienced yet secure.
I'm a seeker that became a finder.
Lift my hands in exaltation of the Almighty.
Waiting for His grace to shower me like precious oil.
Renew in me the visions of life.
Recreate in me a new mind.
Confronted and humbled by this being.
I stare searching for meaning.
Try to peer in deep to study.
The surrounding grounds all bloody.
Curiosity calls me closer.
I stand before it, arms crossed and guarded.
Before this peculiar moment. I was lost and open.
This empty desert owned it.
For now it seems, I'm chosen. She reaches in to touch me.
My knees no longer hold me.
Submit upon her presence.
I have no more resistance.
She whispers me a secret. As warm and bright as she is.
This light cannot be mine and,
I feel the need to hide and,
before I act I'm taken, challenged by a kiss.
The walls around me fall.
My reflection in eager eyes call. This is the time, the place I should have been so long ago.
And as my mind tears out, I hear the cleansing shout,
“you could be right here without lust, hesitance or fear.”
“Just let her heart touch you
and let her words soak through.
Just follow them right to,
the one thing you share with few.”
the ship is sinking
it is abandoned!
the ship is sinking
desert the ship first
the sun is shining----so?
the day is fine and heavenly-----so?
the SHIP IS SINKING!
will there not even be
is all love gone?
are the children here for suffering?
is death beckoning
with such allure?
desert the ship
but oh captain
it is hard so very
to see you
in the life boat
moving to shore
