Desert Flower

Does pain make less sense when penned

Down roads of rotting thoughts here blend

Did I have to sprout in agony trend

Drown into languors unsaid with lost friends

To find you in this desert a watered flower

That soothes me away from feelings bitter sour


Love is for whiles a trickery

Whoever falls first becomes the mockery

While desert flowers in hot waves writhe

It is you I want to be with

The lilies in my dry place no longer breathe

Inside here pain is my filth


Desert flower

Pump in my heart a water tower

I die to spend on your sepals this hour

Dine in the lustre of your shivering shower

If you could just embrace me tight

Look into my eyes and take away my fright

Set this fire on a flame flight

I would flow rivers of crimson bright

Coz love always makes it right
