Others' Sighs


lifeless words and empty hands too much lost beyond repair

a deep well of dark water where time has blocked the way

endless thoughts of a spring that never came

winds rush across the cold desolate spaces that remain

these places that love used to fill lay barren

undisturbed except for my disappearing footprints in the sand

if only I could force rain from the well

but hope has been buried in the dunes

i have not the will to uncover it

safely hidden it cannot be decimated by wind and sand

only fear lives here silently stalking these plains

this heart nearly frozen still and alone waits
