My being was numb, but I was one with the road
It was about what I'd left, not where I would go.
As the sun set upon this place where I'd grown
I settled my mind to embrace the unknown.
Like fireflies paired, headlights passed by me all night
Although miles were passed with no other car in sight.
The red eyes of animals and bars open late
Were small red reminders of being red hot irate.
But thankfully my anger had been turned by the chill
From the driver's side window which remained open still.
A cup of coffee at three to keep me alert
And a big cinnamon roll cause I just like dessert.
My mind began slowing at a quarter past four
But by now my mind's focus was on what was in store.
And after I'd driven through the whole damn night
My tears came, pale pink, with the morning's first light.
