On The Abandoned Railroad Tracks

On the abandoned railroad tracks
I kiss the rust of history
It’s smoldering touch is cold and rough
And traced with torn up hosiery

On the abandoned railroad tracks
A shoe is left behind
It’s royal blue had torn right through
It’s heel had scuff marks like a dime

On the abandoned railroad tracks
Gold glitters in my eyes
A bracelet broken; forever glowing
Like diamonds in a velvet sky

“I wonder who she was,” I thought
Too blind to look ahead
Too deaf to hear the horn they blew
And now we both are dead
