Terminal

Terminal

A Poem by Akshay

Does all the commotion make you think
All the passengers walking about with no clue
All the chitter chatter, the distant clinks
The fashionistas with the red skinnies that they sewed
On a terminal, waiting to board your flight
The children trying to tie their shoes
Do you feel small, not only in height
Are you scared to use the things they use

A common room, you rest to fly
Buying crisps and asking for emotions to blow away
A room with strangers, they expect you to smile
The announcer says it's already May
Have you been here for eternity, oh the abnormality
This life it seems to be so compact
It fits so easily, graciously in these four huge walls
Can you feel your heart contract
Board the plane, do it again till you fall or fail, oh, it's one and the same

Airports do feel awfully big don't they. All those people shuffling off to their destinations, all in a hurry to get where they are going because they are oh so important. It certainly makes me feel small. Perhaps that is one of the reasons traveling is so stressful on the body and mind. Brilliant job!!!

this is a good one. I was looking for the picture where a story can be drawn. Keep writing.

Terminal.
A place in the sky, the end---- apprehension grips us
as we prepare to fly. A small group of people, all
tightly wound, apprehensive, nervous, yet not wanting
to be elsewhere.
We look at the small children and---- dare we think as
they ?
I love this piece, but feel it is above and beyond me.
This is writing so beautiful, so profound that I hesitate
to review ....... Exquisite.
Thank you.
