Lovers


It was a cold, somber spring morning and I firmly grabbed the pole as the bus pulled out, trying to retain balance in my high heels while my iPod was playing Starlight by Muse.

I noticed them right away; she was seductively leaning against the pole and he was watching her with lust and sparkles mixed in his eyes. He grabbed her waist, pulled her towards him and kissed her passionately. They made me feel quite uncomfortable and I turned my head away, desperately trying not to watch them but they were standing right in front of me and I could still see them. They didn’t mind people watching them though. They only had eyes for each other as if they were alone on the bus, smiling, whispering into each others ears and kissing.

I bet their morning wasn’t somber and I’m sure they didn’t notice the ominous dark clouds gathering above the city.

  1. That closing line was fantastic, and somewhat foreboding.

  3. I loved the ending to this. Very sombre. All light, happy and open, and then suddenly you panned out of their world. Fantastic!

  5. I'm rude. I would have stared, caught her eye and given her a grin and a thumbs up...(but I'm weird like that.)

  7. I kinda chuckled while I read the closing line. Maybe it's just me being weird and all. :) Nice post! Been away for a while and this is my first read. Thanks. :)
