Dry and arid

The environment is harsh
Ground dry with barreness 
The rays of the sun fall
Like yesterday, today and tommorow.
Lonely birds sing
In this arid place I now live in.

Scanty clouds show
Grass and shrubs droop in the heat
I scan the skies in hope for waters.
It is my prayer
My wish that waters would fall
To bring back life once again.

Winds howl in the night
Rushing in a journey untold
Chills and cold bite
Avenging attacks of the day.
Such is the habitat
I have been placed to reside.

Once it was all green and alive
This heart of mine
When you and I shared love.
But you left me
Depriving the heart off its needs
Such is the place the heart lives now.
