Drive Away

Updated on March 24, 2011

Drive away,

don't look back.

Take the corner,

weave in traffic.

Hit the gas,

get some distance.

Play the tunes,

drown out visions.

Speed it up,

pulse is racing.

Clench the wheel,

veins pulsating.

Adjust the mirror,

no looking back.

Road ahead,

no destination.

Feelings bottled,

don't explode.

Gotta do it,

just can't deal.

So scared,

but can't admit it.

What did I do,

in my haste?

Why can't I fight,

this raging place?

Pull the car over,

alone in silence.

Take a deep breathe,

oh, what a mess.

Running again,

such a bad habit.

Easy to run,

hard to stay.

So intense,

the need to escape.

Fear wins out,

just can't trust.

Repeat offender,

a shattered past.

Don't deserve love,

can't let it in.

Alone is better,

don't want to feel it.

She sees too much,

have to hide.

Touched my soul,

I'm terrified.

Shift in drive,

pull away.

Wonder what she's thinking,

but drive anyway.

Why would she love me,

with this dark side?

It's better without me,

is what I'll tell her.

Can't admit I'm a fool,

so I speed off down the road.

Don't look back,

drive away.

      Packed with energy and emotion. Sometimes loneliness becomes a trusted friend when a loving relationship starts doaning out those no win situations.

      Excellent job Dex. Up and awesome!

      Wow. so much emotion, reflection and inner turmoil all in a single drive through poem. i love the contrast and conflict of the car, stopping, revving, pulling, driving away to the emotions of loves pull and push and drive. this is a consummate work from a talented mind. voted up!
