Message in a Bottle

I am hollow, I exist,
The train that no one missed - 
Or wanted to catch anyway.
I am here, I am alive,
Seeking any joy I can derive
From another unpromising day.
I stay and I remain,
Life in the slow lane
As time drives away,
A hit and run, don’t look back,
Keep your eyes to the tarmac
And hope and wish and pray
For better, always better,
A bottle holds a letter,
A message gone astray;
No one listens because no one hears,
The world folds in and disappears,
As you return to earth, to clay.
