Don't Stop This Train

Sitting back and enjoying the view. Relative motion has never felt so good. Smiling because you want to not because you have to.

Because sometimes you might just get it all. No loopholes. No illusions or tricks. Just you and yourself. And the rest of the world.

The passionate guitar strings swaying to the rhythm of what is now your favourite song. Even music sounds better somehow. Happy tears that ain't coming. Life is beautiful.

And the more you feel it deep within you, the harder it gets to let it out. And the harder it is, the easier the meaning becomes. So much so that when confusion sets in, you simply screw it. The right way this time.

Because what was once someone else's life is now yours. Because even though the journey is long and the destination seems so far away, the truth is, you are on a high, a very high high.

The truth is, you don't want this train to stop. Not now. Not ever.

Okay, maybe someday.

Words

Twenty six letters and an infinite number of words. Yet sometimes all you really need is one. Words can be tricky. Saying them is one thing, saying them and meaning them is another. Promises unbroken, lies untold. Crossing the line when you should have known better. Playful memories on your tongue. Wrong words rhyming.

Keeping your mouth shut and smiling. But somehow words still ooze out. Loose brain synapses. Damn. Knowing something but keeping it to yourself. After all, ignorance is bliss. Or so everyone thinks. Some words are better left unsaid. Some words sound better in your head. Leave them there. Trust me.

Because sometimes you just have to stop talking, even before you begin, even before words refuse to come out. Sometimes, in moments like these, words are unnecessary.

And yet, sometimes, the one word you really need is right there in front of you. So grab it. Say it. And mean it.

Now that wasn't so hard, was it?
