About the Poem
Circumstance has forced my fiancee and I to be separated by a two hour drive. This poem depicts my ride home after spending the weekend with her. It is sad, but it is love.

The drive is long and dark
We don't speak
We rarely do
My heart dwells on nothing but the past
The future is too far away
It stares out the window
It watches the cars go by
The other souls talk and laugh
Perhaps they are going to a place they both call
Such a place is what my heart longs for
A kiss on her cheek to let her know that we are
This is heaven I think
My heart turns from the window
My body beside it, empty
This shell that walks and talks like everything
My mind thinks of all that needs to be done
My body awaits its command
My heart sits alone
A word of encouragement offered by my mind
My heart replies
My mind turns back to the road
My heart turns back to the window
We both ride in silence
