sad songs

Posted: November 21, 2015 in Uncategorized

repeating unbroken habits along the way
the cool factor won’t cut it on familiar roads
false façades falling phantoms revealed
the sheer energy required to sustain this mode of travel

cracks the chassis the drivetrain warps gears grind
and still the familiar view in the rearview
reflect rethink if this ends someplace nice
then i guess the trip was worth it

somewhere back there i believed
courage crushed broken in a culvert
sad songs sung down the road
my way was the highway

    …Would be great to photo illustrate it 🙂

    this reads like a film…
    i love this line…
    false façades falling phantoms revealed

    This has a nice rhythm about it with strong imagery
