night driving

when you can't see farther than the headlights allow
and you don't know where you're going
nothing surrounds you but trees and water
there are no buildings, no people, no signs man has even been here,
besides this road.. pointing us in some certain direction
somber music flows out of the speakers and into us
we sit quietly side by side
the calmest we've been in days..
so at peace in each others company, in the company of the unknown..
only hearing the sounds of night and piano keys
feeling the earth move beneath us.. the wheels turning, steadily at a pace fast enough that the cool air night hits our cheeks leaving them stinging and red... slow enough that nothing seems too complicated or out of reach
