Train of Thought…

Eight-hour train journey,
Travelling through countryside,
Scenery serene.
Landscape rushing by,
Relentless rocking motion,
Lets me contemplate.
While away the hours,
Indulge my own company,
Catch up with my thoughts.
Rails clickety-clack,
The rhythmic rattling soothes me,
Lulls me to slumber…

As darkness descends,
Grey-tinged reflections, mournful,
Stare straight back at me.
Boredom seeps slowly,
Chills me to the deepest bone,
Pervades every pore.
Growing discomfort,
Numbness of body and mind,
Nothing brings relief.
Patience dissipates,
I long for this journey’s end –
Until the next time…
