Bus FareWell

I get off at my stop

I look back at the seat

Next to the empty one

I just left behind

It’s taken by that girl of mine

I look her right in the eye

And she does me the same

Onlookers look at us

Smiling at each other

Some look her way

Others look mine

But I’m too focused

Paralyzed by her eyes

We never break our gazes

Until we have no choice

The bus rolls on

I’ll see her again later
