Lonely Train

Standard

IMG_5614.JPG

I find the days too short and they grow weary with anticipation
With the night following like an abandoned child crying out for attention
lost and confused
The lonely train whispers its Hello and I wonder if you can hear it too
a thread of a connected thought
from one mind to the next
Ever persistent, time passes us by
leaving the echoes of the train’s Goodnight lingering throughout the city
The ghostly remembrance only makes the silence seem louder
The tha-thump thumping beating passionately in my ears
Reminding me that certain moments can feel longer than wanted or yearned
My lack of patience blatantly stating that we meet with each other again and again
because neither one of us wants to be alone
Familiar patterns of morning, day, and night building up an assortment of attachments and questions
Maybe both of us wondering who would dare to say Goodbye first

I am grateful for connections ❤

Crooked Railroad

Standard

Words to saturate the soul, creep in until you can’t see anything else
Humming tugs of blurred vision, thoughts that interact with more than the glowing glances of the last few moments
Shattering phrases to tempt the mind, to suspend forward motion and bend it a little
A crooked railroad of emotions traveling from city to city,
Underground, out of sight, faster than the speed of light
Digging holes deeper, down into the soil, rooting its new home
The poison seeks, seeps up from beneath the grass
Suffocating those who stop to smell the closest flower

I am grateful for minivacations and tents. ❤
