The Desert

I wait for you
Like a desert waits for rain-

And when you come,
You conjure feelings in me
That I never knew existed

I lost myself in a mirage of you

You held my emotions in one hand
And challenged my disposition
With the other

Something holy
You were,
A shaman to me;
Infatuating me 

But with my first taste of water
I vomited your dogma

And buried you in the
Dunes of my past
