7 Mile Drive
"It's not too far,"
The man behind the wheel said.
But I couldn't see the smile
Playing on his chapped lips.
Only the bloodshot whites
Of the near black eyes that bored
Into mine via the mirror.
He had a pale face and
Yellow stubs for teeth.
His hair lay matted and dank,
Loose upon his shoulders.
I looked out of the window,
Seeing the reds and yellows -
The tell-tale signs of a beautiful
I would have enjoyed the drive
Had it been with anyone,
I didn't want to be here,
Alone with him.
I started to form the words
"Take me back."
But of course, I couldn't utter them.
I couldn't speak.
Neither could I see the trees that had
Only a few seconds before
Lined the road.
I couldn't hear the rumble of the engine.
Only the sound of his laughter.
So I screamed and tried to force my way
It was then I found I couldn't feel.
My hands found no purchase on his neck.
And neither could they grip the door handle.
So I carried on screaming.
Then I woke up. Screaming.
Damn him for hijacking my dreams again.
