Taxi Cab

Taxi Cab

I could swear

That I saw you

In the reflection of shimmering lights

Out the window of my taxi cab

We passed over

Memories of us

Like a hitchhiker off the side of the road

The meter keeps flickering

Binary Morse code

I deciphered all its meaning

A bandage for my poor hearts bleeding

New York City rain

Seeping through passenger doors

Like a vision of your body

Each time I close my eyes

I plead, don’t drive me home

Let me stay in this dream

Where your hand doesn’t let go of mine

Until my destination arrives

Like the thief in the Bible

Stealing you away from me

I’ll still leave a tip

For this momentary flashback

Is worth every penny

I swore I saw you…
