Middle Lane Express Train
Author: Ben Franklin


Days go by, normal train,
Normal middle Lane.

Then that somone comes along,
train turns to express,
middle Lane turns to outside lane.

Eyes become more aware
Life becomes more fair,
A room is no longer empty
as your standing there.

They bring back that bounce in your step,
they mop up the tears on the floor from the last time you
you wept.

Then on their part something small gets in the way,
for example their past,
I kind of knew this express train would not last.

------- Author's Notes -------

You know when you start to give dating another go, and you get that "oooh,I remember this feeling", Then BANG!you realise why you waited so long to give it another try.....

Always give dating a chance, Someone out there like you has also been burned before. Relationships they come and go, The one that will last will be the one not looked for, but already there.. liked this one

mmm hmm

Franklin and Franklin! I guess this is one of life's hard lessons learned...sad to say but if you look to your left, Cinderella is still cooking for her two evil sisters, and if you look to your right....BEAUTY IS STILL SLEEPING! LOL! Well, you know who to lean on when you get depressed....God, family, friends, and Me!

So put on a smile, even if it's a fake one!
Your heart is in your work! Wonderoso poem! (Another one of my words for wonderful)
