A Bus Ride


Source : http://www.imgrum.net

A packed bus
Cribbing me
A sudden jerk
A sudden fall
Body over body
Anybody over somebody
Somebody over everybody
The bus halts
With a curse
I rise
From among the bodies
I rise
And stand erect
Only to look
Into your eyes
A Head taller
Above the rest
Your hair
Brushing the roof
Holding on
To the rails
You smile
Your eyes smile
Your curving lips
And shining eyes
I drown
And drown
And drown
No bodies
Pressing me down-
Just my heart
Pumping so furiously
Enough to drown
The whole world round.
I fall
I fall
I fall for you
Here and now-
A single smile
And yours
I have become!
Yet how sad
For you
Know not me
Know not
My heart
Which no longer
Belongs to me…
