Motion

 

Early morning rocky motion

Balance is uneasy

Commuting creates internal commotion

Spinning, feeling queasy

 

Colour drains as the carriage does bounce

Dizzy spots now surround

Fearing nausea will soon be announced

Something unpleasant is abound

 

The shaking of momentum is ceaseless

Unsure how long nausea will last

No cries for help sat speechless

Hoping sensitivities will pass

 

Rattling on rather uncomfortable seat

Innards bounce around

Pallor turned ghostly white as a sheet

Wishing for a place to lay down

 

Fearing a potential unload

From making the slightest of moves

Trying not to violently explode

From the speed of the rickety grooves

 

Pleading for stomach to settle and rest

The journey is coming to a close

Using calm controlled medicinal breaths

While the rest of the body remains froze

 

As the station finally approaches

Movement, is forced to be made

Departing carefully from clattering coach

Curses to the driver unsaid
