the heart track

who is he now
i wonder
my back facing my future
my seat on rails
how very little I seem
to feel the stability
of steal tracks
Every derailed second
I catch up between
you and I
I get more upset with time
Why did we have to change
Why did we not hold on
Why didn’t we just wait
For this one-way facing
Fate to reach it’s terminal
We could have gotten off
there or we could have
lived as rail road rebels
in rusty wagons
on broken tracks
no one wants anymore
no one but a jobless
Train conductor
and I.
