Deserter

Truly, it is over
My cheeks are dry
But the taste of salt
Will not leave my mouth
My heart no longer races
Even when you are so close
But there is no returning to
How it was
I will now endure
The slow crawl of time
No longer a drifter
But a deserter
Slogging through the mud of
A futile effort
