There is a cold desert I visit,
every night when I close my eyes.
In my dreams, I stand on the edge of an ocean.
Filled with the trials, and tears, of painful truths.
Lessons hard won, battles fought and lost, 
in the landscape of the mind.

Every day spent dancing recklessly towards destruction.
Tiptoeing ever closer to the void
tempting the winds of fate to make an example of me.
Eons spent fighting the demons only visible to my eyes.
Those demons, punishing me ruthlessly,
for daring to question my fate,
for hoping for more.
