I Keep Driving

I Keep Driving

Driving down a county road
No lights for miles
The darkness surrounds me
There are no trees or fields
Even the flowers hide from the moon
Animals step into my headlights
Then they flee off into nothing
The radio stations died miles back
There is nothing but static
There are no headlights behind me
No tail lights in front of me
I have seen a few stop sign and mile markers
The only proof that there is anyone else
I don't know why this road keeps going on
Maybe I died and an endless road is Satan's gift
I will keep driving ahead
Listening to the stones fly from my wheels
This is my own private hell
No music and no one to talk to
The clouds glow ahead of me
Lighted by the glow of a distant city
It is a mere glimmer of hope
So close but still so far away
For now I drive through the darkness
Straining my eyes to see one familiar landmark
More than just a glowing cloud
There is nothing
Still I keep driving on into the darkness
I just hope that soon there will be some light
I just keep driving

    Reads like a good description of Rt. 95 between Las Vegas and Reno in Nevada.
