i hear the train...
a film between us
between me and the night
between my chest and life
a milky haze
warmth and softness seize my gaze
i awake in heavy daze
a heavy bitter glaze
my heart chokes back
my lungs feel flooded
i can't run anymore
too weak too done
ready to be undone
unwound unsung
lift the rod from my spine
take the lead from my breast
the yoke from my shoulders
the weight from my chest
stop the aches
the heart shakes
the body quakes
like a child i lay fetal
waiting to be saved
what day what a day
in what moment will salvation make way
