burning sky

I awaken
To a burning sky
and treacherous waves

The whispers on the wind
mocking me in my pain
Entranced and haunted by last night’s dreams

Making music, lovemaking
telling our stories
Our lives a relentless battle between aspects of self

Coming close to fulfilling all desires
satisfying the voracious hunger
the insatiable thirst

Defending again and again from the saboteurs
the tricksters, the smiling faces that portray innocence
Intent on betrayal and deceit
