One More Night

If I close my eyes I am back in time- I am deep in Northern Canada on a winding road the forest is snow covered and dripping with white and we are driving at night through the falling snow but inside the truck it is warm and I am with him one more time, just one and then I will be gone leaving him forever- for this is a love not to be I know in my heart that to love him is impossible so why even after all these years do I feel the tears sliding down my cheek, why do I hear the radio playing that love song... one more night _________________________ July 24, 2020 Poetry/Free Verse/One More Night Copyright Protected, ID 20-1271-249-03 All Rights Reserved, 2020, Constance La France Received NA in Strand Completely New(13) Judged July 26/20 Submitted into the contest, NA Rerun 10 sponsor, John Hamilton Fourth Place

Nice write Constance, enjoyed although of serious tone, congrats on a nice placement, would call this more free verse than verse. Thanks for your entry, no N/A this time!
