POETRY - "Bus Stop"

BUS STOP

Standing at the bus stop
Still waiting for your bus
It left some time ago
you never said to wait for it
& you didn’t promise it would be back
and yet…here I am
standing
waiting
wishing
hoping it will be here soon

I’ve been offered rides
Many times
From pintos to grand Cadillacs
I took a ride in one once
You know the kind I like
Chrome wheels, plush interior
Bumping sound off a smoooooth ride
But it was all show
Nothing like yours
Comfortable enough for all your baggage
And mine
Besides it wasn’t even his to share with me
So he had to bring me back to my stop
Where I still stand
…and wait
For your bus
