Midnight Drive


A little bit of moonlight and a few scattered stars
Dimly lit roads and a few passing cars
The rumble of the engine drowns the chill in the air
And yes its past midnight but I still got wind in my hair

Light from the headlamp brightens up the way ahead
But through the maze of my thoughts in darkness I tread
I try sorting them but give up soon after
I seem to be haunted by my own mocking laughter

With a good dose of the throttle the engine I gun
Far from here the bike and me do run
The dark landscape meanwhile has changed unseen
And at the end of my ride I'm back where I'd begun, as if never away from here have I been....

Ah! For starters, been overjoyed with the book! Am happily obliging anyone that wants a signed copy! :P
Also been playing around with a couple of ideas for a couple of books, this time it's short stories.
Oh and yeah, been pretending to be job-hunting too! Not extraordanarily keen on that though. Still havent been able to figure out what I want to do with life!
So in a nut-shell, that's about what's going on with me...
