via Daily Prompt: Restart


A newstart, a new beginning
Going to get away from you
A new town, a new job
I plan to start anew.

Leaving all the noise behind
Your negative remarks
Going to protect myself
And mend my broken heart.

New friends, new adventures
I can turn my life around
I should have done it sooner
Should have left this half-baked town.

I’ll pack my bags tomorrow
Going to get an early start
Heading out, I won’t look back
I’ll drive till it gets dark.

Riding down the highway
Every town that I pass by
Helps me to forget you
And all your cheating lies.

Looking thru the rearview mirror
Puts a small upon my face
Your memory won’t linger long
It will be easily erased.
