    I can't breathe,
    This heat consumes me.
    You...
    Your heat consumes me.

    I'm wandering, lost and alone.
    Searching
    Trapped in a desert created by broken hourglasses.
    Hourglasses broken by you.
    So much time has been lost
    And the heat is rising.

    You're wandering, scared and confused.
    Frantically smashing the hourglasses one by one
    In a desperate attempt to keep from aging.
    Growing up.
    Becoming the person I know you can be
    and the desert is growing wider.

    Patiently I have waited.
    Waited for the sand to be swept into a pile.
    Waited for the shards of glass to be sifted out
    And pieced back together.
    Waited for the hourglasses to be finally repaired
    By you and me together.
    But time is standing still.

    How many hourglasses must be broken?
    Can they all be repaired?
    Can we get back all of the time we have lost?

    I'm hopeful...
    But for now,
    The heat still rises,
    The desert still grows wider,
    And time is still standing still.

    Thank you, Alex. This one means a lot to me, so I was hesitant to share, but wanted to show, I don't know, my hopeful side? I suppose.
