Onto Forever

two lane blacktop

somewhere in Nevada

eyes gritty tired

an all night run

dark Great Basin

lit only by starlight

a silver sliver moon

lights a road of silver

leading nowhere

leading somewhere

all night radio DJ

clear channel AM

Del Rio Texas

steel guitar and fiddle

whiskey drinking songs

like it was in 1959

no smokes left

ashtray overflows

nothing in front

nothing left behind

sadness long ago

sadness still to come

somewhere to nowhere

nowhere to somewhere

running from god

running from life

all I loved left behind

never arriving anywhere

she cried when I lied

sisyphus without a rock

no mountain to climb

only unending roads

both hands on the wheel

into desert darkness

onto never forever

One thought on “Onto Forever
