You make me thirst

You make me thirst,
Like a drowning man in the desert.
My lips are parched and bleeding.
I ask for solitude you give me sun.
I hope for you and cry my dry eyes out.

To long have I waited.
But forever more I will remain.
Whisper in the silence of my heart.
Longing...hoping...trusting,
One day you will look on me and smile.

It's all in vain.
Dust is all I eat.
Red clay of Earth.
Silt, and sand and rock.
Enjoying my torment,
Loving your lies.

Rapid motion, rapid beating.
Burning coals beneath my feet.
Move with me in time.
And forget about longitivity.
