Chasing an oasis

Chasing an oasis
-deneenwhite

Chasing an oasis
The closer I approach
The more distant I find myself
Dry, arrid land
Sand irritates
Blisters form, not pearls
Perpetual disillusionment
Disappointment
Silence deafens
Promises made to myself
Broken, once again
I stand
Strength wells from within
Scarred hands hold mine
The look
Undeniable
Accepting understanding
