The Girl on the Bus

by Dawn Pisturino

The bus driver watched you in the mirror,

His eyes wide with fear,

When you stood up in the middle of the bus,

Crying like a terrified child.

Passengers waited with bated breath,

Wondering what you would do.

The sharpness of your pain . . .

Please visit Spillwords here to read the rest. Thank you so much!

Have a beautiful day!

    it was full
    and had to pull
    the sign
    was run over and knocked down
    and is now shown by a red cone
    how sad
    after the money they ve had
    bus stop!~
