The Little Train That Couldn't

The Little Train That Couldn't
by Raederle Phoenix
2005: Junior Year

I write rants.
I hate ants.
I eat plants.
I can't, I can't, I can't...

I can't let you know what's on my mind.
I can't let you glow, that's my find.
I can't let... I can't...

I'm not the little train that could.
I'm the little train that would.
I'm the little train that should.

I'm the little girl who didn't.
I'm the whirl that pushes me down.
I'm the girl that fell to the ground.
I'm the one that left without a sound.

I'm not a square, I'm quite round.
I'm in this dare to be found.
You can't find me,
You can't relate to me...

You can't, you can't, you can't...
You're the little quirk that said it.
You're the little squirt that did this.
You're the cold one with an evil kiss.

I can't... I won't... You can't...
You can't leave me tonight.
I wont leave without a fight.
I can't make you see this right.

I think I should,
I think I would,
I think I can't,
I think I can't...

I know I can't.
I know I can't.
I know I can't,
but I think we could.
