A tired body and droopy eyes,
Aching muscles and a pounding head,
Travelling amidst other soulless bodies,
A fluffy bed being the only fantasy in mind.
Relaxing in the not so comfortable seat of the bus,
And slowly slipping into deep sleep.
Until the loud honking and traffic outside served as a rude shock,
The image of the soft bed with a dozen pillows, now reduced to a mirage.
Out of the blue, someone calls out his name,
She clutched her bag tighter and gave a wry smile,
Tonight I will fall asleep with you in my heart, she thought.
