Bus Journey – BOOK SELECTION by Safoora

posted in: Poetry 2012 | 0
I waited for the bus
I shaked when it approached
Thoughts raced inside my head say
“I can do this”
The bus stopped
I breathed in
Got on, flashed my bus pass
No exchange of words
Sat on the nearest available seat
Breathed in again
Glanced out of the window
Recognised the bus journey landmarks
As the bus passed
After five stops
I pressed the bell
The bus stopped
I got up
Wanted to say “Thank you”
But couldn’t get the words out
I breathed in
First bus journey
In five years
I smiled
