I like what you wrote very much, you made it very relatable!

I am starting to see a pattern with you poetry; it is concise and meaningful. You take a unique approach with a haiku. Commonly, a haiku focuses on nature where you center around "human nature." From this short stanza, I get an image of a couple riding home after a date, not wanting to get out of the car because they want to spend more time together. Simple and elegant, indeed.

Short poems are always my favorite because you can make an impactful statement with just a few words. It's also not easy to do, so I applaud you for taking the risk and doing it. The first two sentences are so powerful, it definitely makes you think. And, to be able to make someone think by just stating two sentences is a talent.
