Fly Away

Waiting at train stops

Watching trains wisp by in a blur

I can see their faces

Wishing one of them were mine

 

A black bird sings

Singing a lonely tune

Reaching out to me

Asking me to fly away

 

I close my eyes

Thinking of long forgotten roads

Roads that have fallen off maps

Waiting to be found

 

Silence jolts me from my thoughts

The train is no longer to be seen

Only the yearning remains

The black bird has flown away
