Hi, i'm terribly sorry for the random comment and I haven't got a clue if you as a user checks this account anymore. I was asked by an instructor to write a poem about the industry of Transportation this morning and told a friend that given any topic I could write anything (story, poem, and so on). I had an urge to search for "Street Light People" on google and this photo was one of the top results. To me it's a beautiful photo in every single aspect. Both the photographer and woman used to model in it were perfect i think. With all of this said I then spent the next bit of time moving back and forth between the picture and my thoughts. Within 15 minutes (I know that seems really short that's just how I am when it comes to this sort of thing) I had written my poem. There were only two parts that I had made corrections on and only because it didn't sound right to me. I showed my friend and she demanded that I print it and read it aloud. Although I haven't decided if i'm going to read it on Friday I did print it along with your photo (only for illustrative purposes so I can remember why I wrote it). I spent all day deciding if I should post a comment here and now that i'm headed off to bed I decided to not only comment (writing far more than I planned to >_<) but to also post the poem for you to read if you wanted to. I hope I haven't done anything offensive and even though I don't think it's the best poem or anything like that I do hope you can feel what I was able to by looking at this photo. Thank you for your time. (This is in no way spam I just felt this was something I needed to do, I even created an account here for it. I also haven't really read this poem or edited it since I wrote it i'm sorry if this has been a waste of time.)


A girl all alone

With eyes closed tight I can see her alone

Just a fading flame on the side of the road

But it’s all just the same as she clutches her knees

Just a spec on the ground from the sky but I see

“I just want to go home” screams a voice in my head

“I don’t want to be alone, help me please before I’m dead”

So I shutter and shake while I sit in my seat

As the attendant asks if I’d like something to drink

But I shake my head no and look down at the ground

Where the lights follow suit and the passengers make no sound

“I’m coming for you” I whisper so low

And I sit and I wait for the plane that’s too slow

But I sit and I pray for just a bit more time

I flew all this way just to save her sweet life

As the plane touches down I’m rushing out the door

Driving up and down the streets of LA with a foot to the floor

Till I see a girl sitting all alone on the curb

And I park the car to greet her though I can’t say a word

I panic and scream “I’ve been looking for you”

With tears in my eyes and my hands shaking too

She looks with confusion as I draw closer now

And I hold out a hand trying to my best as I bow

She asks me my name and I shutter to say

“I’ve had dreams of you now for so many days”

She takes my hand slowly as I help her to stand

The lights from around us like fire so bland

And we walk to the car where I promise to take care of her and

We spend the night talking as if we had always held hands
