Melancholy (dedicated to M. W. on March 19th. 2013)

and such is the life that I stood
blue and solitary
in the dark
while the rain poured down on my bare skin
without protection
no coat or even an umbrella in my numb hand
waited for the train
that didn’t come
to bring me home to warmth and safety
the empty tracks alone
reminded me
of what we shared while we were still together
now melancholy
is my sole companion
the MP3 player whispers in my ear
alluring and beckoning
and my tears blend with the raindrops
until the music ends
