  • Solitary Night Travel by Train


    I lay back against
    Coach seat – abandon troubled mind
    A few people up ahead asleep
    Silence adorns the car

    Shadows of bleak terrain
    Structures blur by the window pane
    Clickety-clack and chuga chuga
    Rhythmic jar as lullaby

    I feel forlorn swallowed
    By unending night - ignorant of what
    We purchase here I fear the
    Dark apart from you

    Your words here paint not only picture but also emotion quite well Tanner. I could feel the motion, and the bereft heart of the lonely passenger.

      I agree with RLW.

      The desolation and despair articulated here, the solitary train is emphatic imagery, punctuating the loneliness.

      Exceptional.

        A train out of time,
        a memorial attraction
        now Amtrak holds the line
        against final extinction
