On a Train

1. On a train

 

Sat on the train

Which is going the wrong way

Away from where I want to be

But no chance that I can stay

 

Staring, unseeing

Out of the grimy window

Thoughts free-wheeling

Don’t really want to go

 

But go I must

Despite my heartfelt wishes

Leaving behind those I care for

And not even any parting kisses

 

Still, life must go on

Left to rue what I am leaving behind

Left to stare, unseeing, out of the window

Feelings left stuck in my mind

 

Sat on the train

Which is going the wrong way

Away from where I want to be

But no chance that I can stay.

Thoughtful
