Reminiscent reality

Do you tilt your head back
In a bus in the eve
Lights on
Lot of people, noise
A hell lot of energy
Not all the good kind

Do you tilt your head back
Close your eyes and see stars?
Stars on a dark night
Bright and alive
A slow breeze bringing smells of joy
A soft touch of someone you love
A breath of laughter
Voices familiar but far away
Closer to your heart but oceans away
So much distance, your heart clenches
Not for them, but for yourself
Selfish that you are

Do you tilt your head back?
Do the silent tears
Having loud tones of their own
Muffled
Drip down to no resistance?

You’ve lived a day child.
Wipe them off with a smile
And get off at the next stop.
It’s time.
