hitch hiking

as the sun breaks through the trees
my eyes sting with recognition
and I’m reminded of my state
how happy it was to lose myself
inside my mind, I could wander forever
the long road ahead
the dust left in my wake
miles and miles of black stone
all seemed much less severe
and you seemed so much closer
instead of staying further away
now the sun begins to fall
leaving me with the road and dust
the black stone and endless miles
dark emptiness I can use to dream
and be with you once again
