Flying over the desert (for the first time) 

Sept 11 2015

For the same reasons I love the moon and the sea

The deserts vast baroness could consume me with its emptiness

It is unforgiving

And I am just a speck

Another, albeit larger, piece of sand just passing through

Unforgiving and unliveable

I want to spend the rest of my days here

Proving myself

Proving the more human side of my existence

Stripped away of my personality and quirks

The desert will reform me

Just like the ocean

And just like the moon

I am fated to live elsewhere and long for the emptiness only they can provide

The emptiness that my heart

And my soul

Relate to more than I welcome
