I wandered through the desert, a wilderness encapsulated

By body and mind

Watching every breath as it whispered your name

Only to be drenched by sorrow as

You were no where to be found.

Or perhaps was it I who was lost to myself?

A silence so deafening 

I could not sense paradise beyond

My own emptiness.

I waited for any flicker of light

To show me the path toward your heart once again.

The light just drew me back into myself.

And there you were, waiting patiently for me

To love myself again.
