Carry me

across the sand,

and find an oasis

so we can drink-

I do not care

if it is all pretend-

A mirage of the mages

is good enough for me;

Let us walk through dust

and desert to reach

the promised land

before my tongue and I

dry of thirst.


Take my hand and guide me

through the engulfing

black water sea;

what looks like turquoise

from the shore grows dimmer

as we swim and sink.

The water is cold-too cold

to gasp and stand-

my heels graze against the broken

shells and crustacean carcasses,

and I wonder when my next

breath will be.


Brave the flames alongside me

before I lose myself to this heat;

my skin is on fire-but you know

that. You feel it too. I perspire

and feel the water I had swallowed

abandon me like you would never do-

my fever will never be

broken now if this inferno

remains in my mind through the night.


Stay with me

as I drift from the world

and all the wonders we have shared;

My body does not move unless

you carry me, but my spirit

is already leaving to dance

with the wind like we always said

we would on happier, healthier days.

I cannot drink enough, and I cannot

keep cool. I cannot catch my breath

when the rest of the world

in smothering me in front of you.


Do not cry for me

when you can guide me no more;

I do not want to die, but I want

to breathe and sing in the breeze.

Swallow your sorrows

and watch me inhale the invitation

to a life better than the one we share;

Wait for me, and I will

wait for you so that I might

be the one to carry you through-

Wait a while, and I will take

your hand and show you

how to dance in the wind.
