The Drive

Just two nights ago
I lost you
And tonight it was
That I couldn't bear
To sit at home and
Try to contain
The depth of
My cold, wet spirit
So I got in my car
And I drove.

I drove with the windows down,
Feeling December air
Fill my fragile lungs
I looked out at the last
Whispers of sunset
And in the dark
I drove as I cried;
Tears of sadness,
Tears of hope
Hoping, hoping
To let you go.
