So Many Miles
Desert Rain.
Rain of sand.
Blowing grit,
Course and dry.
Cutting wind
Strong and hot.
Many miles
I've yet to go.
I can see
The moisture leaving
My cracked and withered
Skin.
Hard to breath
In rattling gasps.
Many miles
I've yet to go.
My eyes are crying
Tears of blood.
My mouth is drying.
I'm tasting ash.
Walking blindly
Step by step.
Many miles
I've yet to go.
The sand is burning
My feet and hands.
The sun is stinging
My eyes and back.
Every inch
May be my last.
Many miles
I've yet to go.
Kingdom of sand.
Vassals of dunes.
Each knight
Is fighting
My perilous flight.
Horizon oncoming.
Many miles
I've yet to go.
Desert Reign.
Reign of sand.
Ruling over me.
