Them

 

(Meet a couple with different mindsets)

The train moves at an alarming speed

and halts reluctantly at a suburb

where nobody waits

except a couple

She looks forlorn,

unashamed tears flowing free

He looks expectant,

not even pretending to listen,

trying to pull his hand away,

desperate to escape the quiet suburb

to the land of opportunities

He boards, hardly looking back

while she stands there

left behind in the race of life

and that of love
