Tears Run Down

Fate comes barreling down the tracks

an express train
rattling and whistling
better get in the way
or you can’t get on

and what is unlucky
but the opposite of fortunate

may make you feel life is precious
makes us realize
the empty track goes on too long

the time between
that fateful express and the next one
is way too short

does anyone have time to see
how the stars hang so close to us tonight

our tears run down
the rain drowns out the engines’ rattling
fading away in the distance.
