dark line poetry

Like the ground, sunbaked and barren,

a wasteland built on years without rain

Desiré becomes complacent

seeking to quench her thirst

with a single tear

Choking on silence

that rambles across ruined lives

Desiré becomes frail

seeking to satisfy her needs

with a single word

Existing in perpetual darkness,

a world without connection

Desiré becomes desperate

seeking a sliver of sunlight

with a single plea

When lightning finally struck

and everything burnt in a spectacular blaze,

desire became intention

A new path to follow

created with a single step
