Sometimes I look for you – new poem.


© David Milligan-Croft.


It’s been almost twenty years now.


Even still, I look for you,

Every time I visit our capital.


I look for you ascending great escalators,

As I descend into the labyrinth.


I scan the faces in crowded carriages

Looking for your headachey eyes.


I look for the scar

On hands that grip the rail.


Although you are not the purpose

Of my visit, I hope to catch a glimpse of you,


Among the other eight million inhabitants.

And, why on earth not?


It’s still better odds

Than winning the lottery.


And that’s what being with you

was like – winning the lottery.

    It’s about me isn’t it.

  3. David, I can see a film being made based on this poem. I just hope, hope, hope it can have a happy ending of some description!
