Car Ride Home

Gasp for air,

The sudden awakening,
Like a child’s nightmare.
Everything is heavy,
Can’t you feel my heart,
Beating out, right in front of you?

Turning the stiff handle clockwise,
Embrace the wind as the window unwinds,
Stuffy air escapes and is renewed.
Gently accepting the white cold,
Greeting my face, calm,
I feel safe.

Resting my head gently on your shoulder,
Nested peacefully in your loving nature,
Put your arm around me, hold me closer.
Large gusts of Wind are heard,
But only gentle breezes touch,
My freckled skin.
