My eyes saw the road


 


Focused on the gravel


 


The cars beside me


 


And the red of the stoplight in front of me


 


I wondered about us star-gazing together at that red stop-light


 


And how beautiful it would be to see you and the constellations again


 


Smiling at how passionate you were about the universe and the


 


Wonderful creations above us


 


However


 


I didn’t think one simple text would be


 


Harmful


 


I was so eager to know about the book you read


 


But I looked down for too long and


 


I didn’t see the light turn


 


Red


 


Until I crashed


 


 


My eyes flew open and my heart beat out of my chest


 


The dream had my


 


Heart beating so fast I thought the pounding would


 


Wake you from your slumber


 


I looked at you and questioned myself


 


Why was a text more important to me than the twinkling of your eyes and the


 


mountains and canyons within them when you talked about your passions?


 


Why was a text more important to me than your beautiful gummy smile and the


 


wrinkles that reminded me of angel wings next to your eyes?


 


Why was a text more important to me than the time we spent together?


 


Instead of texting you at that moment


 


I could’ve waited


 


I could’ve waited to listen to your wonderful thoughts at your house


 


I could’ve waited to see your freckles and eyes twinkle


 


When we watched movies together


 


When I’m with you we can envision a future of us embraced in


 


Happiness with each other


 


Our time together is more important than any text


 


My eyes remain focused on the road for you and for me


 


Because you are important to me and I know how important I am to you
