Life's headlights

Life's headlights

Standing on the dark highway at night, I feel like the stunned animal staring into the oblivion of life's headlights...

I search the dark for signs of hope but the only thing I see is myself staring back

I've long sought to know my fate and see the great beyond but only the dead transcend destiny's end. I already know there's nothing there waiting. Nothing. Not even the black darkness. Nothing.

Life is what happens before that. Life is waiting for the visceral sound of screeching last second car brakes, too late.
