Missed connections

You were looking for your stop.    

I thought you wanted to leave.

You said: I thought we were here. We're not here. You smiled.

You have a tattoo on your left arm

You were wearing plaid and reading The Economist

You were having coffee at Costa queensway - Istanbul to London, queensway

Pretty girl in a grey hoodie that said “Obey”

I was shy and awkward, you were beautiful and intriguing.

I walked out after you to talk but you disappeared I didn't know where you went

I hope that life gives you everything you wish for

I apologise that you caught me looking

That I could not help looking

you had such a beautiful smile,

It must be you out there.
