Back seat poem #WonderfulWorldofWriting blog

In the back seat of the car…


In the back seat of the car

I am lost in my own thoughts;

How I expected you to be,

I am not entirely sure.


After a long and bumpy fall

You’re bound to be out of sorts,

I try not to be down

But upbeat in my thoughts.


You’re still here and that’s what matters,

You’re battered, bruised and broken,

Your recovery depends a lot

On positive words to be spoken…

    • And thanks for joining in Maddy πŸ™‚ The poem was written in my mind after a visit to see a family member in hospital. There were 4 of us in the car and I think it’s fair to say that we all went quiet for a long period of time… lost in our own thoughts. It made me realise how much I make sense of things by rhyming in my head!

  1. Agree with Maddy that is a very intriguing poem, having read the story behind it in your comment above brings out quite a lot more – without knowing the story behind, the poem does raise a lot of questions about what happened.

  2. When I saw the title I expected something else entirely and was pleasantly surprised.
    As always, a pretty poem. There’s definitely sadness and positivity here. Hope whoever was hurt gets better soon. xx
