Lux's Indulgences - 6. Nowhere Now

There’s a road to nowhere

In my heart

And I’m not sure

If there is a destination

 

Will I care when I get there

Or will I continue

Unto my own

Annihilation?

 

Sometimes I am driving

Along it

In subtle animus

Not recognizing my own actions

 

The hills are not threatening

The curves perhaps annoying

But never dangerous

It seems

 

But shadow casts illusions

Even in the pale moonlight

And the soft glow of the

Galactic plane

 

Sliding through

Inky blackness

My headlights can only

Do so much

 

High beams only

Turned on

When I am alone

On the road

 

It is so easy to miss the

Signs

At speed

In the dark

 

Though, when I do not

Know

Where I am going

Does it matter?

 

There’s a road to nowhere

In my heart

I’m not sure if I care

That there is no destination

Hey, lux... I don't know what you intended, but I envisioned someone lost, but still driving, however aimlessly for the moment, showing some faith, however uncertain it is. Powerful... G

Feels like life and relationships to me ... we think we are in control, but how can we be? At some point we recognize the flow is the only way to go.

Your return to the first stanza - and it is so very powerful - amplifies the emotion in this poem. The loneliness and endlessness of nighttime starlit driving makes for a perfect metaphor. You hit on it so naturally, it hurts. Many thanks for sharing this poem!

Sometimes we just plow on, don't we?

 

Second thoughts, third thoughts, any thoughts seem to point us the way, but then reality sometimes shines its unrelenting light on our life.

 

Powerful stuff there, Lux, because in some ways it affects us all.

That captures it fairly well. :)

Yeah, we aren't always a corps of engineers with tons of money to spend redirecting a river...
