Leaving At Nine


Schedule says last train leaves the station at nine
If I hurry I might  make it on time 
So many mistakes and regrets flood through my mind
A new place and  friends I surely will find
No one here knows I'm leaving this place today
I doubt if they would care very much anyway
Self Pity  aside, perhaps I should think once more
Be strong and face what there is in store...

She watched the last train leave promptly at nine.

    Were you on the train? This was a good poem. But it had no end. It left me hanging on what came next. Where were you going? What did you do? Why did you leave? This poem was a photograph that makes the reader to wonder about its content. You need to tell us the why. I guess what I'm saying is give the poem some form. It's good enough to deserve that.
