Wrong Side Of The Tracks.

Updated on March 15, 2017

words escape me

On The Wrong Side Of The Tracks

2:00 a.m.
eyes stuck in ajar
lids won't seal
words escaped me
hours ago
they run around
in the darkness
of my thoughts
in random patterns
my mind unravels
and travels
on the slow train
to nowhere
the all night expressless
staring out
into the blackness
the bleakness
an endless journey
the clackety-clack
of the keyboard
tracking my
lack of progress
a long wail emits
from somewhere
but my soul sits
silent unmoved
just a passenger
passing though another
routine night
the sun rises eventually
like the headlight
of another train
of thought
coming in the
opposite direction
and so I leap aboard it
and face the starkness
of another day
staring at the brightness
with no berth to claim
and no place to get off
until there comes a
tunnel black and gaping
where once again
I am sucked into the maw
on a journey to a muse
that takes an
unexpected sidetrack
into a small place
known as "Boredom"
