downhill trucker

oh my goodness
i’m 43 with a high school sweetheart
it wasn’t just in my head

she’s real!

homemade dress real
golden braids real
make the world better real
cries at cool runnings real

and i’m a downhill trucker
trying to keep my heart between the lines

so this is why they keep writing songs
making movies
etching words

love lost is love set free
