She will walk away
From something
That isn’t real

Faced with the reality
Of a sand-induced desert
And the sun on her back

It is not the sun she knows
It blazes into her skin
With harsh red marks

She will walk forever
In this valley of sand
Waiting for an oasis

Or her kingdom
To rise out of
These lonely dunes.
