CRESCENT MOON

Poem Commentary

My friend Lon drove a truck, I think he and others could really relate to this, as we all have gone throught this at one time or the other, you didn't have to be a trucker, just a point of view........

CRESCENT MOON

Out of the corner of my eye,
I see her reflection in the windshield,
But I'm staring at an empty seat,
Driving towards a crescent moon,

I see her eyes in my rear view mirror,
Just a memory trapped in tinted glass,
A trick of the night  from oncoming lights,
Reflected on my hood, A crescent moon,

I hear her sighing next to me,
Could this be an echo from a broken heart,
Or just the springs from a heavy load,
Crying softly beneath the crescent moon,

headlights cutting through a foggy night,
Drifting alone on deserted back roads,
Looking for a life that left me behind,
While passing in the fast lane of a crescent moon...

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
