wind whistles
in the distance
where desert sands
meet the sky

undulating waves of sound
break the silence
of remorse—
self-inflicted wounds
soothed by softly falling night

a balm of star-speckled skies
covers them
as lulling music hums and whooshes
almost like an ocean, rhythmic

cooling blistered souls
who wander lost
in the unknown
