Underground

Drip Drop Drip Drop
The water clinks
Darkness surrounds me underground
A puddle of rain water under my feet

I wait for the wind to come
My reflection through the windows
Disappearing and reappearing
The loud chug to sound

I stare down at the tracks
Contemplating, wondering, imagining
Is today the day? I question
My foot slowly starts to take a step

HOOOOONKK! A noise echoes
I look up, surprised
This is my chance I think
Just four more steps

I take one step
Then another
Then another
Just one more step

The lights getting brighter
The sound, louder
I look around with headphones on
Biting my lip reconsidering

I’m really that close
I rewind the day’s events
How tired I was in class
The conversations with friends

Maybe a little more time
I wait for the doors to open
I walk in and sit in an orange seat
And listen to the music
