Headlights


the best part of working a late-night job:
the drive home.
quiet streets
dark skies
quiet mind
favorite tunes on radio
time to think
my "me" time
no lights on at home
no one waiting up for me
i could drive all night
when i reach my corner 
and another good song comes on
i drive on by
go an extra mile or so
to soak up the music
finish my thoughts
clear out my heart 
blackness covers the windows
if there were anyone else out there
which there isn't
they wouldn't see my face
my expression
i am free
to be me
just me & my thoughts.
perfect.
