I’m weary of tunnels.

Closing in around me,

narrowing the future

to a  pinpoint of possibility

ahead of the foreboding train.

    Love the imagery. And I also have a thing for train tracks so I could be biased 😉

    “Closing in on me” gives a sense of something that has to happen.

    Well… that’s when you become a miner I guess. And carve out a better opening yourself, hopefully helping others exit the tunnel with you.

  5. For you, a leap onto the cowcatcher, and a free ride out.
