Escape With Me To Where I Want To Be - Poem by Nick Jankowski

100 miles of asphalt and dotted yellow lines
put us out of sight from any passerby
This isolation brings us closer
Feel the heat this engine gives
as we lay here side by side
on the hood of this car
Let this trivial world fall away
while we wrap ourselves
in each other
and cover ourselves with
the night's summer breeze
I enjoy picking out the stars
which best illuminate your flawless design
under this new moon setting
And naming the constellation after you
In between your kisses
I sing you songs
I've written in my head for you
and all the crickets
stop their chirping
just to see your star-struck smile
