We sped along the highway,
Headlights slicing through the dark.
You placed your hand at your side,
I held the wheel in silence,
Patterns of ice spreading at the edges of the windshield,
The defrost sighing on the dash.
I wanted to look over to you
And love you all over again,
Pull you close on the bridge
And kiss above the water
Far from this hanging night
Hovering over you and I
In our separate cars, driving to different houses.
