Desert Heart

Desert Heart

You make wishes in blue

For a star to navigate by 

Only to become lost in tears

The endless sun 

Burning dreams into oblivion

What once was clear

Shimmers and is gone

Still it lingers in the distance

The longer you stare

The closer it becomes 

And further away it appears

Love but a mirage

To a thirsty desert heart

  1. Those last two lines squeeze the heart. Such vivid imagery. And what Helen said, "Lovely, lovely."
