What do you want out of life?
I want to get lost and then find myself
and realize I was never lost at all.
I want to drive into the sunset and out of the sunrise.
I want to fit next to your body like a jigsaw piece
and wake up every morning to your hashbrowns
and our faces made of eggs and bacon and pears.
I want to catch the bug that makes me itch to move.
New roads and new landscapes.
I want to be content and I want to be released
and I want to see spring swell up from the Earth
again and again and a thousand times over.
I want me to be my past and you to be my present
but I want my future to be a blank stretch of pavement,
wet cement, unblemished and free.
