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" ____ __ >>>>>>|[]|_\/ |[ ]| |[ ]|||o [___]=[___ ]=\\\============== ~o~o~~~o~~o~~~O~O~O~O===============~~~~~~~~~~
