The damn road.
The damn road
A cold winter day in late December.
We lay together sharing sweet kisses.
Your beautiful young body pressing against me so tightly.
I can hear your heart beating.
I put my face into your flowing red hair.
I wish for this moment not to end.
I found you again.
You broke my heart years ago.
The damn road put us back together again.
I escaped to war to lose your memory and now I’m swimming in sweet warmth of your flesh.
You tell me I must get up.
I bring you closer. I hear the road calling me again.
I watch you dressed.
You are beautiful as when we were young and our hunger to love was possible.
I see in your face. The joy in your eyes to have me with you.
So funny I also see your desire for me to leave.
We share a meal and many tender kisses.
I wave goodbye and I saw soft tears in your eyes as I drove away..
I should have turn back and never allowed you to leave my life.
But the damn road and my heart couldn’t take losing you again.
