The damn road

It was a cold winter day.  I awake with my blue eyes lover.

We lay together sharing sweet kisses. 

Her beautiful young body pressing against me so tightly.

I can hear her heart beating.

 I put my face into your flowing red hair.

 I wished for this moment not to end.

  I found her again.

 She  broke my heart years ago. 

The damn road put us back together again.

I escaped to war to lose her memory and now I’m  swimming in sweet warmth of her flesh.

She told  me I must get up.

 I was driving from Michigan to California this morning.

I brought her closer and  I can hear the road calling me again.

I watch my love get  dressed.

 She was as  beautiful  when we were young and our hunger to love was possible.

I see in her face. The joy in your eyes to have me with her. 

So funny I also saw  the desire for me to leave.

We share a meal and many tender kisses.

 I wave goodbye and I saw soft tears in her eyes as I drove away..

I should of turn back and never allowed her to leave my life.

But the damn road and my heart couldn’t take losing her again.
