Car Parts

I count the miles until I get to see you again,
Watching road after road roll by as I get closer to you,
The revving of engines match my heartbeat,
As more pavement peels away in the rearview mirror,

Lane after lane, gear after gear,

Does the feeling dissipate?
Or does it shift up into a new gear?
The sounds of our engines, circulating faster and faster,
As I pull into my parking spot,
My heartbeat pounding in my ears,
I lick my lips in anticipation and crash into you…
