A brief poem for a brief relationship. Note: Contest Entry (use bolded lines)
I desert bloom amidst promises and lies.
Tell me you're falling.
Days bring illusory hope,
Cracking lips craving the mirage,
Imagined cool, quickening thirst.
Possibility in my gaze,
Reflection of doubt in yours,
In dusk: sand and sky.
This final cost paid willingly,
Barren dunes remain.
