Maybe Tonight This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

alone on a secluded street
left with nothing but my thoughts and the memories they keep
darkness encompassing me
everything looks different in the dark
headlights shine from cars driving past
tired but not the kind of tired sleep fixes
my eyelids heavy with the weight of the day
I could go anywhere
just drive and drive
the road and me
but I don’t
maybe tonight

The start of the poem is very strong, and it is nice to find a piece of work that is as relatable to as many people as I believe your poem will be.
