Going Nowhere

 

I walk along the city streets,

feeling like I’m going against the flow

of the crowds.

 

A never-ending line of bodies,

staring out through empty, vacant eyes,

all on their way to... somewhere.

 

Me, I’m going nowhere,

but as I wander, my mind escapes reality and dances.

I love the twist, Hul, and it sounds like you were in a better place than the crowds. Good poem.

Know the feeling....you are just walking and then boom-you suddenly find yourself alone in your head, in another world a thousand vast miles away. Beautifully captured, Hullabaloo :)

I've felt like that many times throughout the years. Great way to put that feeling into words!
