The Better

And I drove through the thickest fog I had ever seen

And mist hit the windows
And the inside fogged up too
And I couldn't see anything

Nothing

White

All I could see was
Barely there white
Dashes leading me
Away from the edge

And the repeating bars
Lulled me to
Follow them

And I forgot everything I knew about driving
About watching the horizon
And I looked at each
White dash.

Guiding me away from veering,

The only thing assuring me I wouldn't fall from the edge of Earth,

Was the solid red lights ahead
Telling me there was still road
And not a nightmarish end of a sidewalk
And I felt like i was in a cold, cold dream.

And I almost forgot.
But didn't.
