Read, Write Poem prompt


endings

'i dreamed a highway back to you',
the road was never ending.
i followed the curves and hills,
with an anxious heart, rapidly beating.
waiting, to find the end; see you
again. amidst my dreams,
the road kept going, faster, faster
until the end found me in a ditch.
no longer would i see you; or you me,
we would end forever more.
existing only in lost pictures,
in a crowd of people lined up,
waiting. back to the city you
would go looking for the pictures.

Lost lovers do appear in dreams- the parts of our lives we've left behind.

My favorite lines-

we would end forever more.
