Coincidence
Why did he sit beside me only?

Surely there would have been more vacant seats.

Looked up and saw no seat available,

No, it couldn’t have been just a coincidence.

Why did he touch me?

The sharp turn of the bus wasn’t that bad.

No, it couldn’t have been just a coincidence.

His legs hit mine a couple of times,

Is he doing this intentionally?

Or is it just a coincidence?

I can feel his breath on my neck,

Why is standing so close to me?

There is hardly any space between us two,

Should he not be sitting a little away?

Or is the bus too crowded?

No, it couldn’t have been just a coincidence.

His arms brushed mine,

Does he not notice that?

No, it couldn’t have been just a coincidence.

It is dark outside and inside now,

Why are the lights off?

No, it couldn’t have been just a coincidence.

Ohhh, that seat next to ours just got vacant,

Why is he now not changing positions?

No, it couldn’t have been just a coincidence.

I saw him looking at me for a moment,

Or was he looking outside the window?

No, it couldn’t have been just a coincidence.

I have to get going now,

Why has he not stood up?

Or does he want me to get past him, touch him?

No, it couldn’t have been just a coincidence.

Hey, I saw him get off the bus as well,

Is he following me?

It couldn’t have been just a coincidence.

Oh! He just hugged a 2-year-old kid,

That’s probably his baby girl.

Then was it all just a coincidence?

Hi everyone! This was just a random poem. It sort of depicts how traveling alone as a girl sometimes might end up doubting everyone and anyone. No matter if the person has no wrong intentions towards you, the circumstances have made us this way. They have given us ‘doubt’ as the first reaction to everything. I hope you guys like it 🙂
