Road train reflection in rear view mirror, winter, USA


Love was the passenger in life’s back seat
Needle to my soundtrack is stuck on repeat
So many options to choose from; yet no one is willing to compete
Bombarded with problems; I dare to be discreet
Wandering about the boulevard of broken dreams
The ripping apart of a fragile soul from its seams
Too many thoughts to write down; going through reams
Of paper thinking of more unconventional schemes
Should I just give up and even concede
Defeat is not in the cards; this thought is to recede
In the back of my mind begging and eventually plead
That Change will soon come as this heart cease to bleed
Happiness…the next exit; caution is shall I proceed
