Empty

v.m.t

a soft blanket of snow 

covers buildings 

& houses 

in this small town 

streetlights glow warm above me

i am here 

below the heavy clouded sky 

& in the silent night 

a train whistles in the distance 

& my heart pounds 

& the train whistle blows

& i stand frozen on the tracks 

empty
