The Lonely night trespasses
The inroads of dark misty heart
A jigsaw of broken feelings
Scatter on a cold car seat

The faces are wrapped
In emotionless masks
As heart knocks against
The prison of its cage

A wish to escape
To rid the soul of torment
Of hoping against hope
Of change, of trust

A longing to submerge
In the cold darkness of highway
Where unknown travelers
Traverse the same way

Strange Acquaintances
And acquainted strangers
This is how….
We scour our days
