Here's another poem. Let me know if you like it or what you think. I'm kind of deviating from my original writing style and just messing around so.


Lines buried in the dash
This burning engine screams
I tear across the asphalt
While ripping my life's seams

Mirrored are my actions
As fading out of view
Curls of smoke linger
As I burn rubber through

Bridges collapse behind me
I'm almost there I feel
As I speed into the night
I maneuver behind the wheel

I dodge potential hazards
Avoiding every chance
To satisfy this black hole
I speed past every glance

Looking for the finish
I pay no heed to past
I roar toward the invisible
So I won't suffer last

So many chances I have had
To be happy with myself
But I have left them in the night
Far back in that lost hell

As I come to realize
The finish line is fake
I complete a 180
With the emergency brake

The pedal is floored again
I speed back to that place
Where I took off running
With a bat from hells pace

Back to the hardships
Of that life I commit
My soul to the efforts
To weather all of it

No longer will I run
Or indulge in my fear
No longer will I hide
But conquer each tear

As I frantically fly
Back to home at high speeds
A windstorm behind me
Scatters old deeds

That upon my arrival
Of eager and haste
I hope for forgiveness
For this life I've misplaced
