A Girl At A Bus Stop

I saw her at the only bus stop
In our little, forbidding town.
She seemed to be on the top -
The girl was getting me down.

I wanted to be just like she –
A young girl of the world
With a hand luggage- so free -
In a bus on the provincial road.

Colorful lights of a big city
Were on the lookout for her.
The bus departed, I felt pity –
I had to remain here forever.

Where are you, girl from the bus?
Where is your destination?
There was a difference between us,
Or... it’s only my imagination...

    A very creative piece of poetry. The kind of thing that really does serve the reader well. I really recommend this piece. I would have given it a 9 but there is no scoring. It is worth every bit of that.

    A lovely poem of longing, rich in imagination, touched by a wistfulness that is very appealing to the reader.

    Warm regards,

    Sandra

    I enjoyed reading your poem. It made me think - how our lives are similar and different but we do share a liking for poetry.
