Mutiny on the driveway

The driveway from her house was a gangplank
overhanging a lonely sea
In vain, he looked over his shoulder
as the door slammed with finality.
The mutiny happened quickly
he was exiled and forever banished
All tethers had been severed and hacked,
all connections slashed
Cut adrift from a wreck of a relationship whose anchor of regret
Threatened to pull him under
He kicked and splayed his body frantically
just to keep his head above water
Even Captain Bligh was offered a boat
He hoped his anger could keep him afloat
