Departing love's caress, the city calls her back into the belly of the
beast. Smoke and fog caused from metal jaws; the highway offers only
cold chills. She misses the warmth of breath on her face. Morning's
commute allows her mind to wander back to loving arms. Lingering scents
fade with each passing day. Memories last longer and at night she
sleeps peacefully in dreams of her love; counting the moments like
sheep, until she returns home.
