These Trains

These trains
keep turning
into prisons,
their iron feet
shackled
to dry timber,

and I’m shattering
on the tarnished tracks,
roasting in this desert juncture,

alone,

where you left me
to wallow in murky shadows,
in fire-torn hearts
coated in echoes

of all the forgotten yesterdays
and tomorrows we never had.
