Out of Track


Out of track

A shaky walk on the track,
locking hands,
falling back and forth,
yet holding on.

Their distances were manageable,
Until they widened.

Neither they meet,
Nor are we balancing it.

The sky is watching in solitude again,
for us to catch the next train.

Beautifully expressed poem!

Can be compared to the relationship with the siblings, or may be I would like to interpret it like this. It is somewhat sad, how the distances begin to widen, and continue to get further widened.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful poem!
