Dry and Desperate
This longing in my heart
A yearning as deep as the ocean
An emptiness in my soul
A void as the depth of the hades

Like a fallen branch from off the vine
I am as dead as the dried leaf
Sired by a bloated wish and questions
Hungry I am for a will to fulfill

Lost to the course of myself
The hang over I get from a spiralling world
A warring peace erupts from deep within
Fruition fails, failure is faithful

An unsettled spirit lurks within this soul
Dry, desperate, despondent 'n debilitating
The goings of the living is a preparation to cease living
My heart and my flesh cry out forthwith to be filled
