Desert Solace

Desert Solace 

I waited
Turned to cold
I waited
Lost my soul

watched the desert flood again
cactus pricked dry sockets
hoping for the jumping cholla to bloom
something to help these bruises

searching for a teddy bear to be soft
fuzzy warmth in a beating sun –
heated desert
even the sun cried for me that day

on that day –
the sun sent its fiery flames
blistering my skin in comfort
yellow star rearing burn into my gaze

seeking to dig a burrow for myself
with that thorny devil
scorching cold upon my breast
inquisitive cactus wren
singing its territorial songs –
white striped eyes
prodding my existence
sitting on my head –
my head now a permanent fixture
set in the sand
thirsting for a morsel of solace –

frisking up waterfalls of erosion
scraping against my parts
corrosion my best friend
leaving me in the desert to seek comfort

desert my true comfort
deserted again –
walking in the desert

    ….this reminds me of the last seen of the japanese movie Kairo…
    It was something like…I’m here with my only friend who is not here at all….really wonderful

    David is the movie about this? “The plot centers on ghosts invading the world of the living via the Internet.” If so woot! What a grand idea. I am waiting for some ghosts to pop through my internet right now! Lol!

    Thank you! I think that this is a swell compliment! (Yes, I do use the word “swell” – I am corny like that.)
