An old concept of mine, but a new poem done in free verse.

I roll and roll, 
beneath a blood-red sky.
How I burn with desire for you.
I am the sands of the Sahara
in search of sweet relief as
every particle of my body 
fills with white heat.

Passion-parched, I turn toward you -
drifting to the brink –
a dune of madness.
The cool blue of you that I seek
appears as if a mirage.
I am Sahara, and my love is vast.
Let me quench myself in you.
