You sat with your friend this morning chatting about work and about your brother
I laughed a little because what you said reminded me of what my sister was like to me when I was younger.
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.
