Refuge

how can I

one brick
upon another

weeping they won’t
last together
for very long

Helpless

Crashed me
Onto the shore

Of despair

I tried to
Put myself
Back together

I tried to look
The other way

But the Ocean
Is still calling me

It’s time
I learn
To ride the wave

Desert

been dreaming of

that’s there to know

about me
