The Desert

The Desert Holds Your Soul,
It is lost.
It is Drying Out.

Your Tears make the Earth Ache,
With a Longing Thirst for your Emotion,
Your Mind is The Desert Island.
You've Mistaken heat for Love,
It is Heat from Hatred.
And your Salt is Left Behind.

No Salt, No More.

For you can't Sweat out that Heavy Heart,
Unlike Tears the Want wont Leave your Body

    The last line is beautiful, the desert themed idea that surrounds this entire poem really brings the poem to an encapsulated completion. Well played emz =]
