Family Ties

Family ties
Bound up in lies
Their secrets drift
Among the shifting sands

The cornerstone
Was chipped and worn
Crumbling in tiny bits
Amid their awful, awesome fits

The drifting waves
Would move and sway
Blowing grand enchanting forms
Within its desert storms

Ignited by a fiery heat
The loving always incomplete
Relief, release
The meaning fell away

In family ties
Bound up in lies
Their secrets drifting
In the shifting sands...
