Dessert Hallucinations

Water,
water,
someone pleads.

His clothes ripped.
His skin burned.
His lips bleeding.

He crawls along the dessert sand,
barley breathing.
Then a vast lake does he see.

Of which he wants to drink deeply,
but as he goes to take a sip,
all he gets is sand.

I liked that, it made me think and I like poems that don't say everything that's happening, you had to think into it and realize it's hallucination. Check out my poems, too.
