Run Away, It's OkayA Poem by i'mHiding
She loved to stand alone,
She loved her independence,
As she dialled a number on her cell phone,
A number that reached long distance.
She was getting on a train today,
A train headed to nowhere,
Normally she fed off these rebellious trips,
But instead this time,
She quietly sat there.
Staring at the floor,
She thought of how many had crossed it,
In and out of the old-fashioned doors,
Mumbling among the public and racket.
The day was coming to a close,
Her's was the very last stop,
She was seeming like a ghost,
Invisible from bottom to top.
Her suitcase packed beside her,
Her eyes looked tired and weary,
For a girl so young and sure,
Her eyelashes flickered and became teary.
Noone sat beside her,
She was usually surrounded,
The life of the party,
Her laughter seemed to fade,
She hadn't spoken since morning end,
Hours, minutes, even seconds,
Silence is a fickle friend
A one-way ticket,
Clutching onto it tight,
hands folded in her lap,
a tear in her bright, but saddened eyes.
She had left to find herself,
See if she could be someone else,
spend a day observing others as they go and stay,
be quiet instead of getting in the way.
Running from herself,
Tired of who she was,
Missing who she could have been,
Sick, tired, had enough.
tired of being tough,
Her eyes were tearing up still,
Here and now she was fragile,
Being alone was nolonger a thrill.
She realized there was eventually an end,
She knew there was nowhere to run,
She just wanted to see something different in herself,
Alone on a Train in the setting sun.
