Missed Moments

On eastbound train
You: dark hair, stunning
Me: shy in green vest
You alighted before
I made the connection

You: blue uniform on bus
Me: waiting for wake-up call
Blue until you respond

At opposite corners of Joe’s
You me we stared
Should’ve didn’t regret
Now let’s cross the divide

Please you know who you are I was wearing you were
I could hardly you were so I couldn’t now can’t stop
please give second chance wasn’t expecting rush
with everything else sat next to boiled up
reworking scene in street aisle office
looking everywhere fear lost in city
in hustle of moment transformed
by face rushing by give sign call
write anything but this silence
of not knowing if we can be
no longer lonely reading
these classifides seeing
If you saw me
