Bus Ride I Used to Do


(At times when I am mad or upset I remember the old times)

I used to take a ride bound to nowhere
Enjoy every moment of joy and fear
Silent the whole time pretending I know
So people won't find out I've nowhere to go

I do that on days when I am most mad
Or days when things and people are sad
Friends even music are nowhere to be found
And I feel so alone I'd rather be gone

I get hold of myself after doing all that
I get tough I get strong it's myself that I pat
And I can't thank enough my nobound-ride
Because of it I gather my vanishing pride.

    Naida...I admire when abstracts are related to realities. I am hardly anyone to judge but in my humble opinion, you do have the wonderful technique to express your imaginations vividly. Great read thanks.10/10 for sure: -) (Report) Reply

    I enjoy long bus rides as well, they're so... Liberating, and peaceful. It is good that you have somewhere in your head to go, something to remember, when you need it the most. Beautiful poetry. (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
