The Well

After years of walking
Aimlessly in flames
Trudging through
Sands and ash
We had found
one another
Two parched tongues
Sharing
the same thirst
Offering shelter
Against
scorched earth
And listless tomorrows
With hearts
and hands Intertwined
We put our lips
To the chalice
Only to taste
The horror
Of me poisoning
The well
