    I peer out the tower's window
    An immense desert is all I see
    From the bottom of my eye
    Stretching to the horizon
    Bleak and grey, cold and dead
    Nothing lives there.
    There are no mountains
    There are no hills
    Not a single animal is visible
    Nor a tree, nor a flower
    Not even bones
    This is my kingdom
    This is my world.

    My tower is the only feature
    In this duneless desert
    A small, round column sticking up
    I conjured it up from the nothingness
    It keeps me warm in the night
    And, would there be day,
    It'd keep me cool, I'm sure.
    No visitors come to my door.
    I'm not even sure anyone else exists.

    I once believed, however
    That would I go digging
    I'd find radiant treasure
    Glittering gems, sparkling emeralds
    Deep, bright heliodors
    Transparent quartz clusters
    And maybe even some gold.
    I dug, I'm sure I did
    But I found nothing but dull dirt
    And grey sand.

    Yeah, it's generic crap. But I'm not writing this to get paid, so quality is irrelevant, hah.

    Feel free to reply to the other threads I've made which got few replies. Which are.. all but 3 or 4, I believe, hah.

    And I don't mind your stalking. You won't be able to find anything I'd otherwise not admitt to. : o
