my passengers

the blinking thin
line stares back at
me, as it beats
with my heart
jumping for
you so silently. there

is a poem inside
me, a poem i want
to let out badly, but
the words are
scrambling like train
passengers on their
final stop, rushing
to come out. there is

too much that i
want to write, as if
the words in the
dictionary will not
be enough, because,
listen. from thousand
miles away from
me, i am not even

sure if this will
reach you, hopefully,
but there maybe one,
no, it’s a thousand
poems inside me, and
maybe i will not
be able to spill
them out successfully,
but this one i
think i can say

surely, you are
my heart’s poetry.

  1. I love the idea of words as passengers. It’s a very apt metaphor. Of words being as passengers on a train that the speaker can’t let off. Words they can’t reveal although the speaker deeply and ardently wishes too. Beautiful poetry as always. I’m in awe of your ever developing poetry pieces. Also doing your November Notes again this year. I can’t recall if I did it with you last year, or the year before. But I love it and Satah’s Music selection (with your input of course) are so far wonderful. I’m still about 4 days behind as OctPoWriMo just finished for me yesterday lol.

      1. Aw thanks Rosema. I’ll be slowly going at it. If you comment only sometimes I don’t think there’s an issue. There is not enough time to read every piece everyday. At least that’s what I’ve come to understand and feel.
