Stranger on a Train by DpressedSoul Stranger on a Train by DpressedSoul
I looked to the skies
Turning away with blackened eyes
I'm a stranger on a train
You're all strangers on a train.

Sorry to confuse you, but all that you know is wrong
And there's just no name for whats gone on

(Antimatter, Everything You Know is Wrong)

Taken in the outskirts of Halle/Saale (Germany), out of the window of a running train.

Work inspired by my photo:

remainI hold on to your silence
numb and cruel, empty
voice that never speaks

you howl like a storm
behind unyielding bars
that hold us both, caged

inside of me you seek
your hollow vengeance
but I cannot grant us

Well, surely one of these views with that slight breeze of cold, leaving me alone in a questionable state. Reminds me immediately to ourselfs, our confrontation with those creations past decades since the industrial revolution. Probably, maybe, possibly, we have not worked up, couldnt follow our own speed. So full of emotions and the same thoughtful :)

Now that's a really interesting interpretation, thanks a lot for sharing it. I took this picture out of the window of a running train when I was leaving one of my favorite places here in Germany, a city that is full of personal stories. That is why it's more about leaving beloved places (or persons) while you're not sure if you will ever see them again, and you're sitting in the train amongst strangers and suddenly feel like the loneliest person on earth.

It is my pleasure, Florian, all the more because your reply tells a lot about your thoughts behind this image! And I can relate well, leaving good places, people and the loneliness that comes along with. But I rather tend to enjoy such moments, because I'm certain this is better than to glimpse at fleetigness, momentariness. Thanks for sharing your thoughts :)
