Desert

Ailing heart,
seeking solitude amidst angry faces
but finding salty tears in a rundown oasis.
Life for naught
when Peace died holding your hand on the blowing sand
and those offering trust never had quite enough.
You’re alone now, ailing heart,
but that truth’s a burden you’ve carried
since your journey through time began.
