The Bike Series: Contrails

these remnants of you

caught in the

grooves

of my

tyres

keep me riding

rough

on smooth roads

marring the trail

I was meant

to blaze alone

halting my progress

back to me

new tyres today

now wheel me

safe

away from your

crooked trails

of lightning rod angers

lies and deceit

I travel these old roads

trails and streets

anew

my soul

my own

finally complete

you a distant memory

I no longer

see

    • Thanks, Marie, glad you do for it will likely ynever end. Human relationships (and I do not mean just romantic) have long fascinated me, left “con trails” in my mind I’ve yet to write out.

  3. I love this Janni, the haunting images of the first section followed by the sheer joy of the second.
