A desert heart

Water gushing out from my heart, my feet dragging through nowhere.
Can you hear my call,
Oh, my Beloved?
Endless tiredness
Engulfing my being like silvery rain,
Silently the I that has long gone
Watches over endless plains.

A desert resides in my heart
Heat destroying my fickle body.
The midday sun scorching my skin
My eyes burning with tenderness.
Endless dunes of sand
Still loving all of it
As in this desert You reside.

Dizziness ensues,
Who are we
But free?
