NaPoWriMo – Poem #10

If I Were a Desert

If I were a desert
I’d be endless sun
light, searing and brilliant,
dancing like glitter
over each speck of sand

If I were a desert
I’d be shifting landscapes,
treacherous visions,
gliding over a graveyard
of dust and bleached bone

If I were a desert
I’d be scales and shells,
sharp spines and venom,
life through persistence
shifting amidst my sands

If I were a desert
I’d be warm breezes,
heat from a lover’s breath,
exhaling torment and promise
against raw, responsive skin

If I were a desert
I’d be dry lips,
parched and cracked,
whispering to cool rains
begging for the waters to come

and quench me
