Phantoms

On I drove through the night
Frustration bringing my only sight
In your mind, you carried a ghost
your problems more serious than most
In your heart you carried a secret
too afraid to talk
too afraid to speak it
you spoke your mind as best you knew
guilt and fear obtructing your view
I took your hand, saying we would endure
You shook your head, say you weren’t sure
You closed your eyes and broke away
leaving me alone with nothing to say
I swallowed my pride, said it was okay
I gripped the wheel and said goodbye
watched you fight the urge to cry
I drove alone off into the night
lightning providing the only light
I closed my eyes and said goodnight
