My face is a town
that she's put in her rearview mirror
I've been the way there and back again
Now I have no way out

The only lovers that know my lips
are the vices I can't stop clinging to
We all take our medicine
then creep home under the radar

I'm just killin' time
until time kills me
2012 Matthew M. Danielson

from Chapter 15: The Twilights of Life

Awesome! I like how you don't spell things out for the reader so we have to actually use our brains to catch what you mean ;)

Thank you very much. I try to be a little cryptic, but not so much that people don't get the message. It can be a difficult line to maintain.

Thank you so much. They're my favorite lines as well. I liked them as soon as I wrote them down.

All of life's streets seem to be One-Way.

That they are. You have to go around the block to get across the street.

It's a conspiracy, I tells ya. Damn that Stephen Hawking and his arrow of time. Not that I actually believe in time. :D
