The Night Train - Poem by Jose Lu

The tickets still at the hands,
Looking at the outside
through the glass;
I stared with empty eyes.

The train starts to moving,
A coffee cup still puffing in left hand.

A journey have started
22 hours'll gone by
the tune is swaying in my ear.

Nothing to cure my pain
I'll just think in this train
Alone, and wonder.

Still remember?
The day we meet,
Our journey long?

We never broke
Until a call
Had broken it all

Why you never told me?
I'm crashed now.

Where are the bonds? Are they fake?
I wonder; I started to realize..

A lie.It's what has we done.

My heart is as dark as the plains now.
the rain has been pouring in my heart.
It's bitter.It's numb.
It's all feels empty now

What have we done?
Slowly, I turned my head around.
There's nothing outside.
Just blurred shadows of black.

A reel of memories flickered
It was all a lie now.
A betrayal changed it all.

Black plains moving outside.
I took a sigh.Maybe we just like that.
It's all black.

Maybe we shouldn't meet
And I shouldn't asked
But the time is moving fast
just like a train, it won't stop for a change.

A little calm seeped trough.
I can see it clearly now
Maybe just to accept it;
we have said goodbye now.

Clearly, I start to sleep

I can see it all now.

    ohhhhh superr, you rockzzz Jose.
    loved it a lot, its theme, its style and structure everything is good.
    climax of the poem is awesome.

    Where are the bonds? Are they fake?
    I wonder; I started to realize..
    really an innocent question from the deep of heart! ! ! ! ! ! !

    Maybe we shouldn't meet
    And I shouldn't asked
    But the time is moving fast
    just like a train, it won't stop for a change.

    this portion is amazing and also the following stanza and the ending of the poem, are really very good! ! ! loved it! keep it up! ! ! ! ! !
