Driving

Poem By Kim McInnis

the painfilled notes of my song ring out
dripping ironically
broken in mangled gasps
sobbing as the car tears farther and farther away

I feel a part of me dying
as something new is born

Comments about Driving

I scribbled this down in the car on my way to Toroto over summer vacation. It's narrative; a really sentimental song came on the radio and started to break up as I drove away from the signal. Getting away from the troubles and torment of regular life in my regular place. Or, in essence, taking a vacation.
Once again Kim you have totally curve balled me. I am having trouble deciphering this one. send me a message on how this one plays out.

From A Pond

I’ve been holding your hand for far too long now
- your palm is hot as a swamp
- your thick fingers turn my knuckles white

Tears

I'm sorry
that I'm not strong enough
to hide my anger
- frustration

I Want

to be the face you wake up to
- to stay up late waiting for you
to curl up in your arms
- to feel your breath on my cheek

Torrid

wandering around in the dark
along - running again
away from myself

On The First Of Many Anniversaries

a year has passed
one year
since we chose this path
an empty promise to ourselves

Insecurity

now that the storm is over
I can't help but wonder
where I should turn
I look to my wrist
