you get on the bus


your own way

blond hair pulled back

no make up

jeans and black sneakers

clutching your starbucks

our eyes meet

i grin a hello

you take a seat

glances words

never exchanged

no hug

no kiss

tongue in cheek

before i can say have a nice day

you're off the bus

not even a goodbye

I had a boyfriend at old town station- a younger guy with rasta braids and a happy heart? We are tall, we connected daily but never spoke. I miss his smile

tallsharon - that is interesting / great to hear ...since i do travel by bus and trolley daily usually at the same time -i do have a few of these ongoing relationships and if i could write a little better think they would make an interesting short story ...
