We settled down there
You fixed like obsidian
Dark and polished
Beautiful and unmoving

I loose like ash
Scrambled to cling to
Solid ground yet found
Only the wind

Pushing us together
And pulling us away
Like crevices born
Of the same volcano

I spoke of rockfalls
Yet only let the lava flow
When internal tremors
Became unbearable fractures

Desert Heart

My heart has been flamed open
Fanned by the fires
Of beautiful art pyres
Laid to rest in the dust

My heart is alight in joy
Ignited by ecstatic dance
Feet planted in warrior stance
And all I can do is beam smiles

My heart has tasted your love
Then cruelly torn far away...
How I await for that day
To tell you how I love you
