Just Drive

Started out on a dirty road

all alone on a path

where the sun is getting ready to set

leaving the good old day behind

to settle on the horizon to let it all go

Started out on a dirty road

Break your heart and steal your wits

Leading your steps to a winding

rocky and sometimes steep mountain to climb

and end up to who knows where

Walked in a dream

Inside a dimly lit room

Not sure if I’m lucid

Inebriated or just plain out of my head

I wonder if that is how death is

A never ending stroll in the dark

Silence

The silence between you and I

cuts the air from my lungs

airways blocked by cinders and fallen debris

from the trainwreck that we were

What was a harmonious melody

only sour notes left

a distant sound barely audible

perhaps a sigh a gentle breeze

or a whisper from a dying ember.
