Metro

This is the latest in the “anonymous woman” series, again done on 6×6 and originally in pencil and pen. This one was actually sketched out before I started composing it. That was mainly because the vision for this one was much more complex that pervious versions and needed me to play around more with its construction.

Like all the pervious ones in this series, this too is inspired by a song: “Metro” by Berlin.

I’m alone
Sitting with my empty glass
My four walls
Follow me through my past
I was on a Paris train
I emerged in London rain
And you were waiting there
Swimming through apologiesI remember searching for the perfect words
I was hoping you might change your mind
I remember a soldier sleeping next to me
Riding on the MetroYou wore white
Smiling as you took my hand
So removed
We spoke of wintertime in France
Minutes passed with shallow words
Years have passed and still the hurt
I can see you now
Smiling as I pulled awayI remember the letter wrinkled in my hand
“I’ll love you always” filled my eyes
I remember a night we walked along the Seine
Riding on the MetroI remember a feeling coming over me
The soldier turned, then looked away
I remember hating you for loving me
Riding on the Metro
