The Driving At Night Feeling

In by Chris on July 23, 2011 at 6:42 pm

Everyone leaned half-asleep against the windows except the driver, who guided the sedan over the rolls and curves of the road, his heart beating slow, slow as tree-cloaked ridges became silhouetted against the moonlit sky.

Every so often a car would pass, dousing their collective reverie with electric light, rousing them, until the rocking motion of the car, the Beatles wailing quietly on the radio, and the blanket of the night settled them back again.

The road might have stretched out beyond miles, deep gray terrain curling past as the car stayed poised, a humming lapse into somnolence and hallucinations.
