As I traveled the vast Desert I was parched and in need of water. Water is life, water renews I began to hallucinate. I looked over the next dune. I saw an Oasis. So I ran towards it hoping to quench. As I got closer it faded. Of course it was a mirage On the vast Ocean as I traveled Charting for never before seen coast I sailed for days that turned into weeks Over the next cresting wave I saw something unknown. I was on this voyage all alone. I saw something It was a figure Similar to a woman It was a dream.. maybe it Is what is called a mermaid That mystical beauty that exist in tales Then I thought about the time I was stranded with no water In the Desert It was a mirage again But, I am Not in the Desert There was water all around me So is there a difference in tales you ask? I don't think there are in fact If I tell I saw it Please don't tell me I didn't They are my needs and desires My rude awakenings My mirages in fact. In the desert I was missing my water And I needed some On the Ocean I was missed my Girl Her I always desire They converged when needed Into the heart So I let them unfold It is my world.
