Leaving It All Behind

The image above is from snatti89 at

For the visually challenged writer, the image shows a young woman standing at dusk looking at her smartphone at what may be a train platform. There is a large puddle of water in the foreground reflecting her body, the overhead wires and lights, and the deep reddish-orange color of the sky.

She checks her phone one last time as dusk slowly comes
The train will soon arrive to take her to who knows where
She let out a heavy sigh
This is it
