Coming to you

 

How did I end up here

So far away from myself

So far away from everybody

 

Everywhere I look there is just

A flat expanse

Flying away in all directions

 

White dust on dry hands

Hard clay burning

 

This is desolation

Dehydration of the soul

The result of a wrong turn

Turning my existence

Into something I did not expect or desire

 

I have to find the strength to stand again

To stand

And to walk

And to find my way back

 

But

The searing sun

The listlessness

The blisters within my soul

 

Still

I shall rise up and walk

I shall rise up and I shall walk back to life

And find you in the midst of it

Guided by the magnetism of our love

 

I owe it to both myself and you

To heal and wash within the cleansing waters

That nourish and revive

 

If anything it is the hope of this destiny

That will be my salvation

 

So I am standing and coming to you

From across this expanse

 

Please be patient my love

And do not leave the desert’s edge

 

 

 

To receive love, you have to give it...
