In this light the dust is visible
Glowing golden atmosphere
Even the air I breathe is full of memories
Shades of others bathe my skin
And since I am alone I wonder
Who on earth would ever know
If I slipped into the other side
Without making a sound
Without blinking an eye
Without slowing down at all
I could jump the track
Still the wheels are turning
Landscapes echo in my mind
Flying past my windows
How could anyone fear this place
And since I am alone I wonder
Who on earth would ever guess
If I crossed this fragile strand that binds
Without making a noise
Without skipping a beat
Without slowing down at all
I could jump the track
And what were specters now have faces
Casting light in darkened places
Those that I have loved are with me
Never gone but ever drifting
Through the threads of my existence
Courses running side by side
Paths entwining realigning
Meeting past the great divide
In the realm where phantoms hide
Sanctified
Occupied
And since I am alone I wonder
Who on earth would ever care
If I slipped away before my time
Without saying a word
Without praying to god
Without slowing down at all
I could jump the track
I could jump the track
I could jump…

    General Commenther life until this time has been so torturous. she doesn't know what to do, so she contemplates suicide. by "jump the track", she means bypass all of life and end it all.

    General Commenti enjoy this poem more than her others for on certain days i can relate...ive writen poems and storys similar to this....and....that is where me and emilie may find a common ground...both of us feel under apretiated....ignored.....and ocasionally...useless.....and i think that we all during some point in our lives wonder wat would happen if we were to just....die....we wonder who would miss us and what would become of those we leave behind.....but some of us such as myself ponder this very question evry morning....and evry night....and i imagine Emilie does the same
