They have gone on without me
I am left behind, alone, age has
come to collect the rent
for time spent, as loneliness sets in
over distance estranged
the train has pulled away
the tracks no longer vibrate
no smoke is seen nor whistle near
the boat has sailed beyond the line
of thin horizon, leaving me, only notes
from a cloud on a plasma screen.
