Love Crust

It took me a week to realize your dunes flowing in my desert

With every inch of those seven days heightening the mania of my senses

The unnerved thoughts left the shelter of my rumbling soul

And the eyes were in search of the lightning that could paint my barren lands lush


You were in the unsettled dust and in the coarse particles of sand

Touching my entranced segments with the mighty afternoon gusts

And then came the howling clouds with a billion droplets forcing you to seep into my heart

While I closed the doors of trust with the lock of love preserving our crusts
