That Time

on the turnpike

we stopped the car

after arguing

behind the rest stop

machines traveling

so fast

the end is coming

but it already passed

you confessed

those horrors

you thought it gone

did he really do that?

how can it be

sad and not surprised

heard it all before

  1. Like any good poem, this could be interpreted in several different ways.

    The last two lines give this a nicely jaded effect.

    I assume it’s a break-up…He’s cheated and you are thinking “really?” Then you understand that it’s nothing new because you’ve had this happen to you before.
    I hope that’s not it because if so then it is sad. I’ve been there if that’s the case.
