Home Away From Home

Empty:
The station with no trains.
Just people
Aimlessly milling about.
Waiting. Watching.
And what for?
For family. For friends.
For their loved ones
To come home.
How would it be, if,
One day,
They never arrived?
But they always do…
All at once.
I watch one woman
Run the length of the platform
To receive her man's kiss.
To hold his hand in hers
Once more.
And in that moment,
It seems that he is not
The only one who is
Home at last.
