Waiting at the train track emptying my mind

Liddle beet cole tudey,
The air sits silently,
Dangling on puppet strings,
The frost blocks my view,
Bites my nose,
Nips my toes,
Fogs my mind,
As I hurry into today,
Leaving nothing behind only time,
And the misery of tomorrow,
A train blocks my way,
Another delay as I try to rid myself,
Of the words of yesterday,
The smell of the past haunts me,
As I wait in limbo,
Anticipating the end of my future,
As I dwell on the past,
I catch a glimpse,
Of an empty trash bin in a darkened alley,
Green fluorescent letters,
Leer back at me,
Shouting, screaming, yelling,
Empty bin,Empty bin,Empty bin,
I can’t resist,
So I tell it my life story,
I can hear it giggling
As I wait for the trash man,
To take my past to a better place,
Somewhere within the distance of here and there,
The morning moon yawns,
As the sweet smell of tangerines,
Invokes memories of yesteryear,
Fucking with my mind,
A good mind fuck,
Never hurt anybody,
Fuck away,Fuck away,Fuck away,
Carrying me away,
To what I hoped would be better days,
Lost in time,
Letting go of my mind,
Every second,
An eternity,
Just a fantasy,
Blissful daydream,
She was so young,
Forever young,
Ageless in my eye,
Seductively undressing,
Skin so soft,
My weathered grained hands,
Soothing my soul,
So beautiful,
I kissed her tenderly,
She sighed,
I blushed,
I traced her luscious lips,
With my fingertips,
I sighed,
She blushed,
I brushed a tear from her cheek,
And died a thousand deaths,
I held her ohhhhhhhh sooooooooo tight,
Not wanting to let go,
Overflowing with her beauty,
Admiring the intoxicating,
Wondrous beauty,
Of my middle age Angel,
Branded onto my soul,
Until fucking eternity,
