Midnight's Journey on Frosted Rails
Beneath the twilight's velvet hue,
Where mist and mystery blend anew,
A path of iron, straight and true,
Leads to horizons kissed by dew.

In silence deep, the night’s embrace,
With moonlit shadows intertwined,
The tracks converge in ghostly grace,
As dreams and darkened skies are twined.

A crimson orb hangs low, aflame,
A sentinel in the sable night,
Its glow a soft, ethereal frame,
A beacon of unwavering light.

Beside the path, the trees stand guard,
Their gnarled fingers stripped and scarred,
By time’s relentless, ruthless mar,
Yet under starlight, standing hard.

The frost adorns each steely line
With silver threads of cold, divine,
A winter's quilt of crystal fine,
Where frozen whispers dreams define.

Oh, carry me, this spectral track,
Through realms of thought, and time, and lack,
To lands unknown that call me back,
Where future’s hopes no longer black.

This journey on the night-bound train,
Where hearts may heal and souls regain,
The love and loss, the joy and pain,
As tracks unroll beneath the rain.

For in this quiet, serene expanse,
Each rail and tie, in their steadfast dance,
Hold the weight of my advance,
Guiding me by fate's own chance.

So let the night enfold its wings,
Around the world as the darkness sings,
The track to unknown futures brings,
A rail-bound soul where hope springs.
