Premium Member I wander the desert alone
Aimlessly I meander in expansive barren-landscape
Whipped by the assault of rustling windy gales
Embossing sandy designs resembling ocean waves
Simulating pools of water in mirage of seascapes.

Pulse facing, sweat racing
Light deafening sounds blinding
World’s waiting, stage blazing
