inspired by random and some not-so-random events and people in my life

In the end
Our trains arrived at the same time
And left almost simultaneously.
How serendipitous
For me –
No looking back longingly
At your receding figure on the platform
No peering pensively at your train
Fast fading into the darkness.
We may yet chance upon each other again
Another day, another platform
Our paths may cross once more
Another lifetime
It matters not
Our time has past.
In the end
Your train was bound for a new destination.
Mine, headed for home

Game, Set, Match…
It’s over.
The winner takes it all,
The losers - there were
Three in all.
One felt sick
It wasn’t me.
I tell you this because,
How it loves company,

Yes, k, these things take time
But for now
Not even a twinge
Equilibrium reached
For now.

What's Yours?

From the Quizilla website:
Your Daemon, as in the Philip Pullman series His Dark Materials, is a physical manifestation of part of your soul - it is your intimate companion, and comforter, and it is that little voice inside your head. Its gender is usually the opposite of yours, although some people have a daemon of the same sex. It always takes the form of an animal.

My Daemon!

RAVEN - Your daemon may be a member of the crow
family. You are intelligent, observant, and
gregarious. Just as a crow or raven picks shiny
objects out of the dirt, you pick up tidbits of
information or ideas and store them away. You
have a good sense of humour, but sometimes lose
patience with people who are antipathic to your
nature. You are swift to alert others when you
find the truth, and you have no tolerance for
those who would hide it.

HM's Daemon, hehe!

CAT - your daemon may be a cat if you are
independent and comfort loving. You follow your
heart and do what you want to do - no matter
what others think. You have a strong sense of
your own worth, and an inner dignity. You may
be loving and generous in one moment, and then
lash out at someone in the next. You have as
many moods as there are colours in a rainbow,
and you wear them all brilliantly. You always
know what you want right now - although in five
minutes you may change your mind and set your
sights elsewhere. You like to do things with
style and flair. When someone else orders you to do something, do
you feel an unholy urge to do exactly the
opposite? That just might be your inner daemon
