desert lily

her gaze
across the lilac scented room
pierced
the haze of sorrow
that once lay
like mist
over every part
of his world

she is magnificent
the type of beauty
that once seen
cannot be forgotten
burnt
onto his optic nerve
etched
across his mind

he felt
as if dying of thirst
lost in the desert
her smile
was the oasis
he stumbled upon
every glance
restoring him more

his desert lily
a sign of love
of life of comfort
in the dust storm
a shelter
in her arms
that stopping
the stinging sands

he was hers
in that first
wayward look
heart mind and soul
he realized
they were always hers
he just hadn’t
found her yet
