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.
