Night Train
Our house on the hill
is no longer a mansion...or even a place to call home;
highly polished oak floors
have become dry and cracked wood.
Tomorrow's window was
always wide open.
 A bright skylight of future dreams..
 now covered with someone else's
faded and worn lace curtains.
My dreams have vanished;
gone like the night train to El Paso.
How many times i have sighed,
"never again!"
I am just another fly on the wall
that has fallen behind a picture frame
instead of the smiling face on your dresser.
Yes, there have been others
who have promised me champagne and red balloons.
Their words,
"come share my house on Easy Street"
"I'll be your Sugar Daddy"
"we'll tip-toe around the world"
but it has been wasted persuasion
I'm taking my time...well actually, waiting...
watering my little grove of peach trees
and one day i will bake your favorite peach pie
no longer will that old black dog sit at our feet
and remind us that we are...
just friends
Author's Notes:
thank you again Travis...these were inspiring words and they did their duty to unlock a piece of my heart...
cracked wood        tomorrow's window        gone like________        never again
falling behind          fly on the wall             red balloons              persuasion
easy street             peach trees         that old black dog

Hello Linda,

You made a heart touching work with the words Travis gave you!  The lines were woven into such a delightful way of writing that its readers could nothing else be but pleased when they came to the end of this beauty!  Many people, during our lives journey, do promise us many things, they would give us the world and other romantic ideals like that...  Though very little of those premisses are really being caried out.  I felt the very matter expressed in a most clear and splendid manner!

Greetings: Peter

Linda Jo:  very sentimental and beautifully written.  So get that peach pie baked and add some extra whipped cream for me...
