A desert, a cold one
A sharp, piercing wind, glass shattering,
The sand, memories,
Lost from the mind’s grip,

Our tears, salty, our intentions, faulty
What rose will blossom?
What water in a desert?

From broken glass comes blood,
From which we write upon
Our own scars reading
What we sacrificed for love

Empty your eyes are,
Clouds engulf the midnight moon,
What a lie your words were!
