Under The Night Sky

Under the night sky,

you and I walked.

The dim light of the stars cast a halo around us

like ghosts with a form.

Our feet sank in the cool desert sand

as dense as our emotions,

heavy, drowning us

Under the night sky we were mesmerizing, as the stoked up magic of a wizard

Moving up and down the slopes of the dunes

you confined my heart into the vastness of yours

and I held your gaze with my flickering eyes.

I still move about in the brightness of morn

but you have vanished as last night’s dunes.

The brilliance of the sun hurt my searching eyes

but my  heart propels me forward.

I walk like a monk, bereft of any possessions

but laden with a hope to walk again with you – my humped friend.
