We got unavoidably delayed;
The schedule was changed
Without prior notice or warning
We waited for what seemed
Like an intermittent eternity
At the station where
The train never stops
We tried to make some noise
To revive our flagging spirits
But the unbearable silence
Swallowed every sound .
On the deserted platform
We sat perfectly still and watched
The never changing reader-board
Every leaden moment bearing down
And weighing heavily upon us.
But at least love came down to us
In the end and we were together once again,
With glancing hands and looks touching
The salt of despair upon our lips,
Our hearts will break once more.
