Lines on the Road
Those lines on the road;
You dare not say anything as they drift on by.
The drive home seems to alter the time.
But the silence is deadly; as am I.
You know this all to well.
And together, it's no better.
A destructive pair;
from here, we could go anywhere.
Yet instead, we make our way home,
silently watching the faded lines on the road
to distract us from the cold that seeps in through the hot summer night.
We might as well enjoy the silence in trepidation for the fight.
Neither one of us will be sleeping well tonight.
The street lights are almost hypnotic,
the tonic we drink in that makes the world spin around us
as we remain still and sequestered,
pestered by what we both know will soon ensue.
Until then, we avoid the truth
that anything and everything we used to love
has long since been gone,
having sped away in a flurry of woes
like those lines on the road.
We lay as painted lines, silently as guides
to serve as instruction for those who come after
and drive on by.
