Engine 9

Engine 9

A Poem by eatmills
"

Is this the way to die?

"
My oh my
Oh my my

Is this the way to die?
Is this the way to dream?
Is there anymore time?
Is this the silent scream?

Tried to bend around
Tried to save it all
Tried to save your world
Tried to catch your fall

Engine, engine
Number Nine
Going down the Mountain Line

Going down too fast to stop
Number Nine
Time now to die

Dinner with Satan
Or 
Breakfast with God

Is it wrong that I want it all?

To sing from the roofs of love
To bring the dead along
My baggage is heavy see
This is the way it’s got to be.

True love belongs to the dead 
Turn it on
True love cannot be found
In my head.

Coherent thoughts
F**k it all
Watch it all rot
Hear the call

Sail through the bend
Try to understand

Number Nine was too fast
Went over the tracks
And sailed through the sky
A Moment too brief
A moment of grief 
Sorry for the fat lie

The fight is done
And now we plunge 
Back down
We lunge
Into ground

This is it
There are no goodbyes
There are no more lies
This is it 

The engine is on fire
The cars all mangled
Bodies burnt where they lay
Lovers entangled.

I dreamt this moment
I screamed so silent
The days move along
And at the bottom we wait.

Thank you. I am glad you felt that while reading it, it means much to me.
This reads like a song. It's thought provoking and holds great rhythm. " True love belongs to the dead"...greatest line ever. lol Excellent work.
