it's like my heart's
been layin' across
an ice-cold railroad track
for weeks
& weeks
gettin' run over
by long
freight trains.

But beware.
I can wait a long time.
I have the experience.
I was a teenager
twisted up in the masochism
of unrequited love.

There goes another train.

Lost Love
Best be cozying up to the L word.
Them trains run a hundred a day out here.
Still one quick glimmer can swith that freight
to a siding and spare just one night's agony.
Without the hope o' love, we got nothin' baby!
We dun talk 'bout dis brudda

good, Bob

lonesome, old, slow freight, huh? Like that 'ice-cold railroad track' - lousy mattress, and no pillow to rest your head on.

Nice analogy, charming poem.

Very nice piece....... reminds me of how I felt about K.Y. (the most beautiful girl in school/ when I was a senior in high school back in 1959) after she stuck her tongue halfway down my throat, I fell instantly in love with her, then after that she would have absolutely nothing to do with me.....the unrequited love of adolescence!
