Why did we part ways?
I am here. You are here.
Why do we divide?
There was Him. There was Robert.
Did we not live him?
Did you and I not coil around him like dunes eat water?
Did we not both beg of him for Enya and oysters?
Why did he leave?
Did we exhaust him so?
I would never believe that of him.
As we can never lay him down. I wonder if he always knew.
He stays silent in our dreams. Never speaking.
Is he binding us?
Did he always know?
If he had stayed would this be so?
Our life. Together.
Why does he not speak in our dreams?
You cannot return him to me. I cannot return him to you.
Stay with me?
If we stick together we have a better chance.
You and me.
Stay with me. If you lose me then I lose you and we are both desert lost.
Stay with me. I will stay with you.
Maybe then he will talk to us again.
Take my hand and we will both go back to the desert. You and me. US. We will live in the dunes and dream of cats and wild things. Come with me. We are all that is left. We are desert bound.
