No one left and no one came on the bare platform
The energetic buzz is at a ghostly halt
Gone is the mad rush, missing is the human storm
Beating heart of the city, with no rhythm to flaunt
Ended up practicing my couplets instead of being true to the prompt*.
Linking to OLN over at dVerse Poets Pub
*Loosely based on the prompt over at dVerse Poets Pub where Sarah is hosting. She asked for prosery..a flash fiction piece with no more than 144 words. the following line to be included in the prose:-
“No one left and no one came on the bare platform”.
The lines are lifted from Adelstrop by Edward Thomas.
