Theme: Friend

Not Forsaken

Eyes pinned on the seam

between belief and betrayal

She scans existence - 

Not even a mirage

in the dunes of hopelessness.


Spirit parched and grainy

she awaits the gale of gloom

to blow her off sanity’s edge,

When rises a dim spectre

Hazy beyond recognition


Stricken nerves begin pulsating

Ebbing courage creeps forward

Faith advances - slow but sure -

Held precious and steadfast

In a friend’s warm heart.
