unrelenting rhythm, rattle and hum
of the wheels
as they roll over the tracks
shaking them fiercely
that always keeps me awake.

a distant melody that's too loud to ignore.
Not even the darkness
that inundates the compartments at night
seems to help.
It is worse
at night
when the stars are the only lights visible
in the vast, muted space outside
whizzing by my window.

On this train,
a shadowy world
of sleeping figures
the Nightstalker roams free
With a devious, mischevious smile
knowing the next stop
and anticipating
a unique passinger
with a wide wikked grin
familiiar with the shakes.

She watches in the gloom
of the car
waits waits waits
for the thundering train to arrive
In a downpour of black rain on the tracks
She could feel him
She felt the train Shiver
As he came aboard
His black trench was soaked
His head turned down
She recognized his black boots....

I have been drawn to trains since I was a lad. However, I have never lived over the tracks!

Beautiful! Wonderfully written!

I love trains. Every great movie has a train in it. (true)
On a different note there 's an old song by Steve Winwood called 'Night train'.

Love the atmosphere of this post. Thanks Barbie.
