Dunes shift as clouds of sand skip through the air
Across this vast arid desert you’re a welcoming oasis
Your water beckons me to imbibe
And quench my insatiable thirst
Drinking you in to the point of inebriation
Planting my stake in this barren region
To tame your wilderness
Worn down fighting a vortex
Overheated with hungry desire
As we succumb to corporeal pleasures
Even the pharaohs are envious
The Sphinx a watchful voyeur
Two sets of footprints in the sand
No longer desolate or alone
