Desert Moon

The path is long, the path is wide
Translucent sight in full abide
I see all of the women I used to be
And in a moment, they collide with all of the women yet to be

Lucid lover, I feel you waning ever before me
Like a desert moon, it's all I can see

Your light, your dark, they draw me from afar
Settling in, like the rise of a war

There is a new phase besetting upon me
From what I have been to what I will be

Perhaps I'm becoming the darkness of dusk wound in the light of dawn
Love feels much like an empty plea
Yet, like the muse of a fawn
This desert moon still summons me
