long car rides without you

there’s too much time to think
on a long car ride
endless stretches of trees
and fields
are not good company
like you are
i lose myself
in a world i’m not a part of

you’re next to me
and
maybe we’re going to
a Christmas party
or even
a road trip–just the two of us
but somehow,
in this made up world,
the car rides with you
are always the best part
