This Train

Language is never the station
Where we shall leave this train,
Words will never proceed
The elements of
Love, and pain,
Emotion keeps the Locomotive
In motion throughout the
Moments when the rails
Wither and tarnish,
The type of motion that
Words can never harness,
The type of emotion
That derails the courage
To let this train coast
And flourish once
The engine worsens,
All we need is spiritual
Stillness to keep
This train going
