Hands touched the smooth leather moving from door to wheel to knob music drowning out the sound of the rain squeaking down windshield pitter patter pitter woosh patter thud woosh thud Eyes looked through rivers of water: salty puddles dripping down my face and onto my patches of skin showing through my distressed jeans tasteless gallons pouring down on rooftops and bicycles left by careless boys Mind wandered jumping from the street to the pressure weighing down my back to their anger chasing me out the door into the street to echoes of frustrations and doubts muting my senses to my fingers wrapped around my new license scars slashed across my heart words imprinted in my head lungs contracting knuckles whitening lamp posts swimming in out of view ghost screams piercing the dead silence voices of friends taunting, dancing around me whispering .disappear. .goodbye.
