I took safe haven From the lengthy country roads That forced my journey to continue–
In search of a bold intimacy Beyond the stereotypes Of that township
That disowned me for my nature,
But as I crossed that rural boundary I was beckoned by the ominous Luminations that broke through–
The ceaseless expanse of rugged desert,
And as I continued still In search of respite for the night I found myself enticed By the soothing sound–
Of laughter so carefree That I was forced to remember Just why I was forced to flee
That little town Where I once discovered An endearment so striking–
That even though I was bitterly alone I was embraced by the memory
Of that temperate country evening
Where I found you all alone, So utterly deserted at the carnival Where our lives became ever entwined–
Under that starry night where amusement became desire.
