Not Good Enough for Death

Ring ring ring!

Ring ring ring!

Ring ring ring!

The sound echoes in my empty mind

I ignore it and let the machine catch it


It's my friend

He's called 12 times now

Left 7 messages

This time he says it's his last

But he'll call tomorrow

He always does

Yet here I'll sit

Curled up in my chair

Waiting for the Midnight Train

To come take me away

From this cold, awful place

It took my friends

It took my love

Am I not good enough

to ride the Midnight Train?

To let it take

My life?

A very interesting piece...

I'm glad to hear how you got your inspiration. I love the kind where it just comes to the poet. I like how you called it the Midnight Train, and I like the story which revolves around that.
