i got on a train

i got on a train

 

i got on a train

riding along the sky

there were fears

of where the train tilted over a bit

but Lord it wasn't

cos i got on a train

and rode in dark tunnels

above the dirty water

trees were waving their limbs hello

and towns remembered the hearts

of ordinairy people

while

my co-workers acted like a cute couple

i got on a train

and saw the Arlington Cemetary

men in suits

soldiers

i witness families

and friends chatted among themselves

 

i got on a train

and thoughts came in my head

thoughts of my man

who i miss the most

yet i wish he would got on a train

with me

we would hold hands

and shared laughter

we would ride in the clouds

ride in the sun

though

he got on a train in my tired mind

riding alone with me

as they are no strangers

surrounding us

 

i got a train

with words that carry my heart

i cannot wait to write poems and short stories

tonight

i'm a poet, i'm a writer

who got on a train
