It wasn’t too long ago that I decided to run away
I still remember the sound of my heart beating in my ears
When I told Mom I’m sleeping over at my friend’s house
She said OK and out I went
Into the promising sunset at 8 o’clock
Wary of every stare and passing by’s
Of anyone and everyone that would be deemed a witness
To my escape.
There I waited at the bus stop
A bus arrives
“Not In Service”
The driver steps out and lights a cigar
Sitting down in the shelter, I rest my head back on the glass barrier
I close my eyes and pace my breath
My thoughts wander.
Suddenly I’m not in this world
I’m in a better place
I’m wearing a gown made of silk
I’m walking on clouds
Harps are playing
I’m walking and floating and flying
And then I see something
A gap in the clouds
I look into the gap
And there it is
The bus driver and his cigar.
“Hey, are you getting on or not?”
I jolt out of my reverie
The strange looking man has one foot on the bus steps
I look up at the sign
“Express Bus,” it reads.
Bewildered and anxious, I shuffle out of my seat
Pick up my backpack
And enter the bus
With the mysterious man.
the man had an unsteady posture.
he reminded me of my mind.
i stared at him a little too long, too.
just like how i melted into my brain while daydreaming
i fussed into the dirty suede seats.
the aroma of dried sweat, running and crying.
the man looked at me strange,
as if about to gauge my eyes from me.
either that. or he liked how bright they looked under a layer of tears.
he stepped off the bus, wary and steady,
“hey, are you getting off or not?”
