I waited for you, hoping you would abscond with me, like some desperado fleeing for the border. You’d take me away to that faraway place where the ocean’s crush against the shores, like two lovers in the surf and sweet blue waters teem with life.

You left me desolate and inconsolable. I thirst for you like a cooling spring, as a deciduous tree craves the springtime when it can bloom anew.

Where did you go? I refuse to believe that pile of broken metal and glass is your shuttle, that I am stranded forever on, this desert planet Arrakis, alone.
