Guardian Angel

A Guardian Angel
hangs above my bed
and the cross sits
in my front pocket.
The plane takes off 
the runway.
I feel safe.
But two minutes later,
it jolts to the left.
Engines fall silent
and a panic fills 
the seats.
He grabs my leg,
so I hold his hand
until engines
start again.
And I wonder
if we were praying
to the same God.

Where does the train go?

Big, empty space lies inside me, aching for love, a true love, but the days pass and still no one answers.  Quiet nights with only the sound of the train.  Where does the train go?  And where do the people inside it want to be?  Sometimes I feel like that train is my life yet I am not aboard. I continue to let it pass by- again and again. I want it to stop, but I don't even know where I want it to go. So, I let another night end in silence.
