"Many roads I've traveled but to find
you my love. I had to take the highway
and bypass heartache. Listen close sweetheart
as I elaborate on my journey. "
It was near dusk and the moon was ansy to shine.
My headlights were on bright as I bypassed the off ramp of depression.
The blood in my veins was pumping for passion as I lightly slowed up
merging into traffic. I drove further, rolling on my thoughts, paving a
spot for my heart to park. It was suppose to have been a "joy ride"but
I had a mood swing as I moved on.
I turned onto "Sultry Avenue", the steam from the street moistened
my skin, sun-kissed sweet. There were men falling on there knees
begging for a dance, a last chance romance but I had done that
musical collaboration before so I kept going. I drove for miles and
stopped at a rest area called "Dreams Fulfilled."
There were drivers from all around the world.
We stood around as the sun rose above the skyscrapers in
the clouds. After a few minutes and few gulps of spring water,
I found myself back on the highway again. From a distance I could see
a caution light, I felt lost and confused because I didn't want to miss
my exit. It was my time, my turn....My sweaty palms gripped the steering
wheel as I passed through. However, just as I thought my path was clear,
I came to a fork in the road. Which way should I go reverberated like
visual words. Would I lose this love before it is discovered?
My instinct was burning the lining of my guts as I made the right turn.
There were smiling faces, lonely teardrops, flowing gowns, bleeding
hearts, passionate tongues pressed against my windows as I slowly
proceeded not to hit these ghostly pedestrians. I was exhausted and the
exhaust system in my car was about to blow. Quickly, I traveled along and
came across an officer signaling traffic. He politely asked me,
"which way are you heading maam?"
I told him I was trying to find "Infinite Love Lane." The street for
those people who are seeking that one mate to make their lives
complete forever and ever. Luckily, I was only a mile from it. I went to the
left, my heart dropped because ahead there was a dead end sign posted.
With a lump in my throat, my mind started reversing into sadness.
I put the vehicle in gear and began to back out of this ending road.
