.. I wrote this. Magnify everything (except for the emptiness) by ten times. It was my last commute by train from Chicago towards my apartment in Indiana. Now I'm at the last week or so as a Chicago local, and this week will be entirely insufficient.
slightly burning
ripping tearing
a subtle sensation
i've not recently felt

i sit now in emptiness
with few other passengers
already missing them
already yearning

the ache sure affirms
my slight aspiration
to forge real connections
to seek that close union

not with simply one girl
not with a best man
but with fellow wanderers
of whom there are so many

no qualifications
no set of suggestions
if only i see you
then know you i want to
