“should she say hi to her?
or should she not?”
after 5 years, on the metro
they sat, face to face,
constantly looking down,
aware of each others existence
just metres away.
all the memories, the dreams, the nightmares
came flooding in within seconds,
the reason right in front of her,
her bones shivered,
but she carried a stiff face.
as she juggled between to say hi or to avoid,
“ping, her station arrived”
silence won, time to go and walk away,
not even a smile passed,
and two “past” friends remained strangers this way.
