Your Highway

Posted to Poetry

I know you now
who you are
I thought I knew where you were going
I wanted to go there too
the road was long...
...wasn't it?
could you see the horizon?
the cactus, tumble weed, the sand
lightly strumming in a dark alcove band

that lost look in your eyes
echoed in my heart
displaced persons scattered on this land
but it ain't all the same
as you reveal your cards
and I show my hand

"and I never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you,
and I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you"

Now your broken heart shatters my soul
cold rain greys your tears
and reveals what you want to say
'lost highway show me the way'
