Thinking of you...

by Alex   Apr 21, 2007

Driving in the car, in the back seat,
I hear a slow smooth song on the radio, staring out the side window,
I stare at one spot on the road
the yellow line deviding the lanes.

Thinking of you,
in a deep sense of mind,
my throat gets that oh so familiar lump,
we hit a bump.
...And I'm pulled back to reality.

A tear sliding down my cheek,
I flitter about making sure
I don't look like I was crying,
but inside I know I'm dying.

    This is beautifully written and so very sad at the same time...though short you managed to put such a lot of emotion and depth into this piece, and it makes for a very intense read.
    beautiful work.

    Dieing = dying

    I liked this poem.. it was short and I liked how nothign rhymed.. the only thing I would change is I would put some metaphores in it.. makes it a bit more creative and more poem like instead of just seeming like a story.
