Train of thought

Train of thoughts
leaving noisy,crowded stations of my mind
Excited onlookers and strangers
waving teary,heartfelt goodbyes
leaving the platform cold and desserted
Echoing it’s emptiness
the tick tock tick
of the faded station clock

Ratta tat tat Ratta tat tat
wheels rolling onwards
mastering bends and curves
passing merry-go-rounds of carnival
unbending steel never leaves my side

The Ticketmaster collected gleefully
memories of a bygone year
“Pay in kind if you please”
A pound of flesh and sixpence for the ride

Vivid scenes glimpsed with longing
but quickly disappear
A wish to HALT and stay awhile
the wheels are ever turning

Lingering at stations unknown
I care not for these
Whistle blowing
Steam gushing
Milling strangers

Embarking
Disembarking
well worn ticket used and tattered
Comfort is found in the
emerald green velvet carriage

Snuggling deeply into my seat
A knowing smile appears
no end of line in sight
I exhale and enjoy the ride
