Two Trains Collide

Updated on December 13, 2011

Leave comments and feedback!

Two trains Collide in the Night,

Rushing towards Each Other, two Flashes of Light,

Like Torpedoes propelling Nearer and Nearer

Towards the Enemy, as their fates became Clearer.

Each Carrying a Star Crossed Lover,

On their Way to find Each Other.

But were they prepared to spend Eternity Together?

Had they braced themselves for this Stormy Weather?

But Wait! Two Survivors Emerge from the Collision

With the atrocious wreck still envisioned.

He looked up in Perfect Silence at the stars in all their brilliance,

Remembering her and her great Resilience

Wondering where she could be.

Wondering, “Why didn’t she want me?”

She’d wanted so much More than This-

More than his Love. More than his Kiss.

More than the whisper of the wind blowing through her chocolate hair.

She longed for something new-a breath of Fresh Air.

More than the irritating repetitive sound

Of the cricket’s chirping all around.

She told him she was destined to be the Brightest Star he’d ever seen,

He only chuckled, for in his eyes, she was already a Queen.

She didn’t want to merely watch the Stars in the Sky

Grow Dimmer and dimmer as her Dreams passed her by.

He looked up in Perfect Silence at the Stars,

Reminiscing his heart’s scars,
From her sweet irresistible charms,

And Longing to hold her in his Love Starved Arms.

She looked up in Perfect Silence at the Dim, Dull Stars

Trying to nurse her heart’s new scars

Wondering why she had Left

Thinking of Him left her feeling Bereft.

He had supported her Decision to Go,

Though why he did, She did not Know.

It had practically ripped out his very Heart,

Shot him dead, like a Speeding Dart.

Left him in a puddle of Crimson Deep,

But his Heart she would Always Keep.

But when she had left the Rolling Hills of the Gentle Countryside

A part of her Sprit also seemed to have Died.

The Stars has Begun to Fade,

And as they did, she grew more afraid.

Her dreams had faded along with them, as Well

She was forced to bid her Aspirations Farewell.

Now where was she? Some Starry eyed Naïve Kid

-Watching her Ambitions as away they Slid-

Standing on the Corner of Abandoned Dreams and Lost Hope Boulevard

Her Ego now Wounded, her Soul now Scarred.

She heard the Undeniable Roar of the Ferocious Hellbent City

As she stared at her reflection, feeling nothing but Pity.

The City had done nothing but Reject her,

She was sure she would succeed, But that was mere Conjecture

Like A Mysterious, Irresistible Stranger

It had Called to Her, and the Temptation was a danger.

Now, the Country called her Back, like a Long Lost Friend.

Comforting her, holding her, saying, “This is not the End.”

The City had been a Deceitful Devil, Tempting her into the Dark,

But as she Entered this World Unknown, away Faded her Spark.

The Country, a Guardian Angel, Protecting her from Evils of the World,

Lulling her into a False Sense of Security, until into the truth she was Hurled.

The Country, which she had adored, who had also adored Her,

Kept Haunting Her, Calling her, causing Emotions to Stir.

The Memories of her Safe Haven and the Stars that grew so Dim,

Reminded her how she Yearned for home, how she Yearned to be with Him.

She knew the City had Never Loved her, and Longed for the one who had,

She realized now that leaving him was Crazy, Foolish, Mad.

All she could do was Look up in Perfect Silence at the Stars,

Watching from her window the speeding, chasing cars.

He looked up in Perfect Silence at the Stars and Knew what he Must do.

He thought of her and then he said, “I have to be with you.”

This was the Last Chance to Prove how True his Love for her Burned.

He Boarded the Train, and for her he Yearned.

She looked up in Perfect Silence at the Stars—If she came Home, would he take her back?

She Must Know or her world, she knew, would eternally be Black.

She boarded the Train

And tried to ease her Pain.

Two trains Collide in the Night,

Rushing towards Each Other, two Flashes of Light,

Like Torpedoes propelling Nearer and Nearer

Towards the Enemy, as their fates became Clearer.

Each Carrying a Star Crossed Lover,

On their Way to find Each Other.

But were they prepared to spend Eternity Together?

Had they braced themselves for this Stormy Weather?

But Wait! Two Survivors Emerge from the Collision

With the atrocious wreck still envisioned.

The Conductors have survived,

But neither of the lovers have made it out Alive.

      I think to say that you were a jilted lover who still bears some resentment towards relationships would be understating a bit.

      Nicely written.

      Voted up
