Respirator Tissue

Respirator Tissue

A Poem by Tomislav Petricevic

Whisper my name

like a sensation of death

then tape your lips

and turn away

 

Run

The train light chases

 

Railroads are foreign

but old nonetheless

Watch out for sharp rocks

 

Days will rise

Nights will fall

Your head facing rainbows

 

Maybe one day

your feet will have brought

the desired destination

 

Only then

shall you look behind

with memories in eyes

but silence on lips

What exactly is this about? I think I get the last two stanzas though; they're very sad.

I take them to be talking about how people try to get to a certain point in life and then when they get there all they can think about is their memories they couldn't enjoy at the time because they were too distracted.. They're disappointed because they wasted their entire lives getting to where they thought they wanted to be. Now they would give up anything to have another chance at the life they missed - but all they can do is "look behind with memories in eyes but silence on lips."
