Driving Alone #POETRY #Dreams #YouMe w/Justin Moore - That's How I Know You Love Me #MUSICVIDEO #DianaMarySharpton

Introduction:
There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more.” ~ Lord Byron

The following poem was inspired by a special person that I hold very dear to my heart and soul. I too am lost on that lonely dirt road seeking a shack with an ocean view and the only obligation is to enjoy living each day. Maybe he will be there!

Driving Alone 

Driving alone,
thin haze creeps to enclose,
white ash in vertical procession quails a hold, 
to a somber hush trapped along this old country road,
as distant chirps, suddenly unfold,
from a large one-eyed crusty green toad.

Steady’s the constant purr,
to a well-tuned 8-cylinder.
Rubber rolling over asphalt,
crashes into tranquility and stalls to fault.

Judgment unyielding sealed,
wrong in its sight yet concealed.
Focused on a solitary beam,
he drives the length of drudgery or just to the end of his dream.
Time halts as he takes in the deepest draw,
on that short filter-less, as a radio plays sounds in melancholy crawl.
Images flicker in nuisance as unwelcome pests,
a solitude his married and intimately knows best.

Inside a darkened corner of some desolate country bar,
along a forsaken road that’s going nowhere but at the same time not far.
He’s midpoint but not sure, lost at sea, can’t seem to find a shore,
adrift in the ebbs of his time, dreaming and craving so much more…

I have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"That's How I Know You Love Me"(3)
I remember back when I'd go places
a desperate wind wouldn't even blow,
I ran with the outskirt crowd loud
and proud, burnin' up the road.
Pourin' whiskey on the fire
Spinnin' tires and never hit the brakes.
'Cause that just means you're weak

But you,
You never tried to change me
You just tried to save me
And you, you found a way to trust me
Despite the broken pieces of me,
That's how I know you love me
That's how I know you love me

Every man tries to stand tall
Never fall or let love knock him down
Run on through the night
Shootin' out the lights on the heartless
Side of town
Tonight here in the dark I'll hold ya
in my arms and never let you go.
While you kiss away the ghosts

Yeah you, you never tried to change me
You just tried to save me
And you, you found a way to trust me
Despite the broken pieces of me,
That's how I know you love me
That's how I know you love me

Yeah, you never tried to break me
You just found a way to wake me
And you, you found a way to trust me
Despite the broken pieces of me
That's how I know you love me
That's how I know you love me

Yeah, how I know you love me
Yeah, that's how I know you love me baby
Ohh yeah yeah

Remember it's my music, my words, my language. Have a brilliant evening or morning.

Peace and Love Always, Diana

Reach out Baby I am here waiting on you... love you
