Where to?


Except for those street dogs in the suburb, loneliness loomed on this usually busy road. A few bikes went past me as I drove slow, soaking in the sunlight. It could’ve been a good day; everyday can be a good day, if only you could do something about it.

On the left stood a bus, public transport, parked aside. Thanks to lockdown, the world seemed to be viciously quiet. I stopped my bike and got into the bus to find nobody inside. My bag flew aside while I made myself comfortable in the last seats. I had calls to make. Fuck that.

I wish I knew what I wanted.

“The bus ain’t going nowhere, kid. Get down.” Said a sturdy man in his forties dressed in khakis. Must be the driver.

“Neither am I.”

    1. Nobody should relate to that. It’s sad.

              Yeah and maybe it’s good that they leave, so that if they were ours, they’d return or else they might go forever which means they were never ours🤷‍♀️

            10. Haha you’re getting the hang of it. Nobody is ours, they belong to themselves. We just happen to cross paths with them and if they like it, they stay.
