The One for Me (Written September 12, 2014)

The One for Me


I stood by the roadside,

Waiting for someone

To give me a ride.


The cars roared by,

A little too close

For comfort.


It was late in the day,

And I was lost

In the glare of the sun.


I was leaving home,

Because nobody knew

Who I was anymore.


I hardly knew myself.

Every week or so

Someone would die,


And someone new

Would take their place.

We’d all sit around,


Mumbling and complaining,

Or staring into space.

I found it very hard


To get through the day,

Very hard to sleep at night.

But when I saw that car,


Coming closer all the time,

And ripping up the tar,

I knew it was the one for me.
