Upon the Desert

Memories are like sand
They turn your feet to clay
Walking across the now
Your head still in yesterday
A man upon the desert
Among barrages of mirages
The future out of sight
Dreaming of a past twilight
The camel is to water
As reminiscences are to you
Hold onto them in thirst
But you cannot drink them too
