the road

I’ve never wished so hard on a single tank of gas
I didn’t know where I was headed
I just knew I had to leave
I threw the map out the window
and then left it down
feeling the air whip through my hair
at 80 miles an hour
it felt for a second like it was
blowing you off of me
and into another world
for once, I could breathe again
every mile I raced
down that highway
lightened the load
on my shoulders, my mind
and my heart.
it was like someone removed
the blindfold I had been trapped in
and I could see
for the first time in years…
I could finally see the road ahead of me
free of you.
