lonely road

was i on your mind
or was i already forgotten

as the engine of your 66 fastback engaged
the seams in those seats flash with every blink of my eyes

my fingers tracing small circles on my stomach
i can still feel you there

did you see the shame in my eyes
as your smile told me goodbye

maybe if had been better
maybe if i had shown you more

that i was the one you needed
maybe that would have made you stay

slowly the silence of summer returns
as the roar of your engine becomes distant

shielding my eyes from the sun
i drown my thoughts in the sound of the rocks beneath my feet
