COACH 10 SEAT 12

COACH 10 SEAT 12

Iron steel rails straight
as can be,
stretching from here to eternity.
Full harvest moon
hanging over head,
bony fingered trees
beckon to me,
the smell of coal tar and oil
adds to the eeriness of it all,
cold sweat
running down my neck,
False hope
calling me. ..turn around,…
turn around.

The tales are true
I’ve even heard the
train a time or two,
rumbling hard,
coming through the fog,
bright light
searching the night,
trying to behold
a lost soul or two.
odd….as fear
strikes and terror dismays,
standing frozen
in time
as I fade away,
and from afar
comes the conductor call.
“TICKET PLEASE “

I like your writing...you have an original slant to it. I could see Tom Hanks as the conductor saying "Ticket please." Nice and easy read.

you know I don,t were the train is going. but I envisioned a twilight zone kind of thing.. that what I do sometime let the reader make up their own mind. Marie thanks for the read . it really means a lot. Dave

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
