Oasis. A poem.

I was lost in the desert
And as the sweeping sands
Surrounded me with the promise of death
As my tongue swelled with my last parched breath
I saw a vision before me
An oasis in the swirling dust
It seemed so far away, yet agonisingly just out of reach
Of water and palms and hyacinths
And I crawled on and on
Because the promise
Was all I needed
To live

Picture. A poem.

A picture of togetherness
Written in elemental script
Captured then in time serene

A picture that made sense, it seemed
Once upon eternity
Before the poison settled in

A picture of two frozen smiles
But what in truth do they relay
When hollow eyes betray the scene

A picture of faded sepia
Now all bitterness and disregard
As if the picture had never been
