It is one of three "poems" that I wrote in 20 minutes as a fun little game with friends. Quality aint that good but I'm kinda happy with how it turned out given I had to rush it.
Heavily inspired by the sixth station scene in Spirited Away by Studio Ghibli :)

A train without a destination
Going to an unknown station,
The map is blank,
Birds chilling on the bank.
The passengers serve as background characters
As you sit there thinking 'bout the mixture of the potion,
An odd weakness to an odder temptation.
Time passes by, the moon is fairly shy;
Images do not lie.
What are now shadows get up and get out,
Get down and, far out, you sense an ounce of nostalgia
Nostalgia for another past, another life, spirits shout:
"Get in", they say, "Get in", an ominous mantra
That alas feels oddly familiar
As what is now a mere figure
Gazes at the endless pasture.
"Sixth Station", a voice says,
Time to leave, and go astray.
