Loneliness: a desert that only waits
You will wait until the beat shatters it
The beat of her heart, that is below fit
Find an occupation, until matched fates

She does not know yet, that you are the net
Be patient in time, it passes subtle
She is on a path, paved by stronger metal
Do not pay attention to other that met

If you find yourself false, come back default
If you’ve hurt on before, forget by far
For you are not as you seem: as a czar
For if she cries, state it on your own fault

For only when your desert is broken
Will you be free of weeping and fallen

What a great piece. It’s so understandable. You made it really easy to see where you’re coming from. I hope you keep writing, because this is really good. You should check out some of my stuff. I think you would like it.
