Head on home
You bus-stop mirage, you highway pixie
Summer rain on the windows
Like a trail of tears
I watch your face dissolve
As the driver switches gears
But be here
When autumn comes calling
And we’ll see what’s in store for us
With a passing glance to those we left behind

We made love at the flick of a promise
That we both intend to keep
Bodies reduced to nerve ends
A warm chill our second skin
Unlocking realms of brittle splendor
Where all sound appeared to fade
And no one could find us
At peace in the fiery heart of being

Head on out
You freeway vision, you roadside wonder
To where safety lies in wait
And his brand of comfort hems you in
But be here
When fall shows its colors
And I’ll have everything ready by then
For those storms to rage again
And the tide to rush in
Where the fire burns
And this heart now yearns
For the things we never got around to saying
For the songs we just kept on playing
All through the night and into the morning
When the music spilled out onto the terrace
And made that whole wretched neighborhood seem to come alive

The mathematics of emotion
Deciphered by a kiss
A fractured sigh
The past detained
The present alight
And all of our scars instantly healed
My name whispered
Our fate sealed

Drive on
To final chapters and new beginnings
Just a speck on the horizon now
The tail-lights a distant glitter
Cars rush by me as memories get born
Yet the future beckons as the road curves
You sunburned enigma,you child of chance
You taught this loner how to dance
Get out at the next stop
Cup your ears to the wind
And just maybe you can hear me think
As loud as I possibly can
Be here
Be with me
Until then
Just be

I would have used 'fraction's sigh', as in my opinion, it works better. Anyway - good write. I was entertained right the way through.
Keep writing.
