The tyranny of distance

A crowded desert
is still a desert
And out of touch
with you
is impossibly distant

My blood
runs wild and loose
and still
i cannot reach you.

would trade
every drop
to overcome this tyranny of distance.


There is more warmth
in the fire of your eyes
Than any soul can consume
in a lifetime.
There is more
in the truth
than in a burning cop car.
There is more
in a burning cop car
than in all
the news.
There is
a fire
in your chest!
