#NaPoWriMo #Poem #4 Mysteries of Life

On a lonely road halfway across the country
A girl waits on the corner for life to meet her
A Chevy pickup faded by hard work
Driven by a man hungry for more than what the local coffee shop serves

She feels the cold through her thin red dress
As darkness falls and the wind finds her face in a soft caress
The tail lights flicker as he hesitates for a second
To meet his fate as the road sign beckons

The decisions we make in one split second
Can haunt us forever as regret or a blessing
Should he stop and should she get in
Are the mysteries of life like a coq au vin
