Poem: Old Roads

The road ended
So we abandoned the car
Walking down dirt roads
Under the canopy of trees
We exchanged smoke
Between stories of the past
Looking back I’m not sure
Who was trying to impress who
Focusing on your lips
Losing myself in wanting
To kiss you while you rambled on
To the end of the road
Where like every road here
Dead ended at waters edge
The moon missing from the sky
Allowing even faint stars to shine
Like my dim hopes you’d notice
My attempts to convince you
That tonight could be a first
Of many nights like this
