All aboard the station of promise, love.

All aboard the station of promise, love.

A Poem by andrew mitchell

Softly treads the footsteps
on a heart trodden
by the likes of yesterday
where the tracks of departure
have been, a love leaving;
waiting for the slow train. 

So who will embark this time as....
softly treads the footsteps pacing
on a command all aboard,
 where love is travelling.

Great metaphor and imagery of love as a "slow train" arriving and departing...tracks on a wounded heart...lovely wordage, flow and cadence...the mystery of love awaits in the train...Love this!

I love pushing the limits on writing poetry. Not everyone's cup of tea but maybe a few will enjoy the twists and turns, the simple, the depth of simplicity, the bizarre and the ridiculous. Strindberg.. more..
