And Then With A Fleeting Glance - Poem by Nick Hilton

And Then With A Fleeting Glance,
The train was gone,
The line of churning steam,
Trailing it like a childs forgotten balloon,
And love was lost with the train,
Sucked away along the tracks,
Like a tireless evil struck upon you,
For the purpose of sin.

    I liked the sketch of the train leaving the station and the way emotion trailed it (Report) Reply

    I never forgot my balloons...
    as they abandoned the grasp of my tiny little bones,
    ripped the heart off my sleave,
    and fluttered away mocking my tears.

    Ha! I Say...
