Train Station

A train arrives every other minute.
Every other minute rushing,
competing with the next to past.
Past, passing by,
people crossing paths
but never really meeting.
Meeting, almost; never met.
Met yet never known, or forgotten.
Forgotten, left behind.
The right things always left behind
The wrong things never forgotten.
Forgotten how heavy our suitcases are.
Are the trains arriving?
Arriving, leaving.
Endless doorways that connect yet separate.
We meet, we met, we forgot, we left behind, we arrived, we left, we separated.
Every other minute
past.

    I'd love to rate your poem with a 14. Too bad a 7 is high as I can go! This is cleverly written. Congratulations on your featured writing!...Milt
