one way ticket

all my roads 
feel like a one way 
ticket to a cliffs edge. 
in all of my dreams i 
jump before look
ing to the bottom of the canyon 
and a miniature trampoline
hoping to bounce my way 
to the other 
end of these train tracks 
i still wait 
for your ear to press a
gainst. i still keep 
mine held tightly to the steel. i 
will always be 
at your other end i am 
always at your finish line. 
come barrel
ing around my corners 
please come train 
wreck me you know 
i spent every last pen
ny on our one way 
ticket to catastrophe   
but goddam you 
have never made me happi
er to have been so foolish.
