Desert Place (Poem)

Desert Place

Time fades to irrelevancy
-- Hours tick by
   during our company
   with the other
      lives parallel
      separate
      distant
         -- still.

An experience shared
-- lost choices involving
   innocence and blood
   where nobody wins.
      I know guilt.
      I hear pain while
      holding you
      in a silent
         -- grace.

Desert land of all
enduring and suffering beings
--We stand less alone
   with nothing
   ahead of us
   nothing behind;
     lives intersecting
     in the same
         -- place.
