THE MASSACHUSETTS LINE Lisa Winter

40 MILES EAST OF ALBANY
THE MASSACHUSETTS LINE
IT WASN’T FAR BEHIND
SHE FILTERED THROUGH THE FACTS
AND ALL THE FANTASIES
OF WHO SHE THOUGHT HE’D BE
AND WHO SHE’D REALLY SEEN

WITH CLOUDS ON THE HORIZON
AN IMPENDING STORM
BUT IF SHE TOOK ROUTE 9
WOULD BYPASS AND SAVE TIME
AND SHE THOUGHT OF ALL THE STORMS
SHE HAD HEADED FOR
THE WARNING SIGNS WERE THERE
BUT SHE CHOSE NOT TO CARE

SHE'D LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND
AT THE MASSACHUSETTS LINE
TREAD BEYOND HER WORN AND TIRED TRAIL
BUT MILES CAN'T ERASE
THAT LOVE HAD TAKEN PLACE
THE REAR VIEW HAD REVEALED
THE TRUER TALE

A DETOUR UP AHEAD TOOK UNEXPECTED TURNS
THEN TRAVELED TO THE NORTH
RAN OUT ALONG THE COAST
WHERE UNDISCOVERED DREAMS
AND LANDSCAPES RARELY SEEN
HAD PAINTED A NEW HOPE
FOR HE HAD LOVED THE MOST

SHE THOUGHT HE’D DONE HER WRONG
SHE SEES ALL ALONG
SHE’D HELD HIM TO A FALSE REALITY
IT WASN’T REALLY FAIR
LOVING A MAN WHO WASN’T THERE
SHE’S THE ONE WHO OWES APOLOGIES

LOVE LEARNS TO DIG IN
WON’T LET THE BRIDGES BURN
LOVE FINDS REPRISE
AT EVERY BEND AND CURVE

SHE'D LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND
AT THE MASSACHUSETTS LINE
TO TREAD BEYOND HER WORN AND TIRED TRAIL
BUT MILES CAN'T ERASE
THAT LOVE HAD TAKEN PLACE
THE REAR VIEW HAD REVEALED
THE TRUER TALE

40 MILES WEST TOWARD ALBANY
THE MASSACHUSETTS LINE
IT WASN’T FAR BEHIND
