    How did I get here? driving blind...
    on a road that feels good
    smooth soothing engine purring
    just letting my instincts guide me
    after dark...not...
    driving blind but cause the road
    looks safe serene two lines
    converging into one...until I get to
    that point where I notice...there is no point
    that the lines run parallel
    looking at each other
    in awe that convergence never
    came maybe after the asphalt is
    relaid they will / they think /
    replayed delayed dismayed at
    this occurence of non-incedence
    I stare in the distance to where
    the lines may lead / not trying to
    get lost / misunderstand my mission...
    was there a mission a purpose a meaning
    to driving? Now I'm crying opaquing my
    vision swerving on slick roads coated in
    tears coated in my fears /why am I scared?/
    swerving I had the nerve to get behind
    this wheel...they say don't drive when
    your 2 emotional...it's worse than driving
    while drunk...swerving seeing things double
    vision...here comes the collision...

    on highway 69 reason for death is
    unknown"

    I never thought of it that way. I usually drive when I'm hurt because it takes my mind off of things, but there is a different side to it. Wow. Nice Scribe!!!!! Made me think.
