Southbound Again

written by: James Bell



Travelling on yet another southbound train, many miles lie in wait through the enveloping rain;
My binary and singular thoughts, tinged with such sweet pain, turn to play the refrain

Every time, seated alone and journeying south without you;
Left only with ever widening distances and a receding view

Scarred thoughts could never hope to atone;
After all, it would alter nothing to moan

As bridges, billboards and familiar fields flash by;
I see you once more, your silhouette etched onto my mind’s eye
