Desert or Dessert (For Julie)

Syrian ruins
Heart fragments

I desire to drive with you through the antique robotic deserts
Lose ourselves in the splintered mirrors of disenchanted time and expanding space

We choose to either be a hero or a villain before we’re even born
We make allowances for our weaknesses while ramping up our strengths with interfaith

I wanted love, you wanted dessert
I was out of my depth, you were only concerned with the calories

Fairytales do come true
If you’re willing to suspend disbelief and focus on self preservation

Captive audience
The laugh track in your heart keeps you free from lonesome fear and disarming truth

Charles Cicirella
