Desert Span

He sees me here
in this desert span
from my manmade
mirage of love.

And invites me
to thirst no more
to stop inverting
this image
in which I was created.

Oh dear Lord,
it is this quest for perfection
that leaves me
dusty heeled
and alone at the end of a day.

And can it be
that I should gain you
no longer to seek outward
what can only be once fulfilled
given the inward manifestation
of you.

I am Judas
and with not even so good as
a kiss
I will betray you.

Spread the love:
