A busy man

You know those buildings that you see?

On an island of their own, impressive yet forlorn,

Beautiful yet distrusted, desired yet unloved,

Sturdy yet crumbling, rigid yet wobbling.

I walk through these structures of steel, dressed in pressed suits, 

I bump into busy strangers, scurrying in and out of Waitrose, Boots

Not once do I wonder, what their stories are

Will I ever see them again, nor do I care.

Yes, I spare a glance for the women,

Walking fast in stilettos, judging each other

With their glossy hair, neutral makeup and arrogant brows

After a while they all start to blend together.

I do not know it yet, but someday

Someday soon, if I am lucky

I will wake up a changed man,

I will not hurry and scurry, I will not plan.

I will throw my Blackberry into the Thames- watch it drown,

I will laugh and laugh until I forget to frown.

London has a beautiful heart- big and warm and full of tears,

Surely, she will forgive me for not loving her enough all these years.
