Mirage (with audio)

Original image found here

Lost in a wilderness of loneliness 
found in sandstorm of desire 
I reached out 
and you gripped my hand tight
You were the answer
I was the answer
We were the answer
to making it through the night

We journeyed through passion-filled evenings 
until we learnt an orgasm
wasn’t enough to dull the pain 
Weren’t you the answer? 
Wasn’t I the answer?
We thought we’d found the answer 
to feeling human again

You were a mirage in the desert 
I was a drop of water on your tongue 
a fake promise of relief 
during an unbearable drought 
It was never going to be enough 
You weren’t the answer 
I wasn’t the answer 
We were never the answer 
to keeping us alive beyond each other’s touch

    1. Wow, thanks Tom. I appreciate your thoughts, they’re encouraging to read 🙂 All wildernesses have an element of danger… I wonder if that is why we’re drawn to them in the natural 🤔 Getting a bit off topic there, but maybe something else for me to explore.

  1. The last verse is indeed the best.
    How do you think of all such words, and the way you use them in your poem, I’m fan, big time fan Bree.

    You’re phenomenal, your work is much appreciated.
    I’m actually stunned with this one.
    I’ll save the audio for later.
