i almost think i may have forgotten how to.
today was different. i was absolutely mesmerised by this man who decided to sit opposite me.
when he sat down, the scent of cigarettes, coffee and digestive biscuits wafted up to my nose. he wore a blue v-neck, a grey cardigan and dark grey trousers. he was about in his late 50s, perhaps early 60s. his hands were rough, and with each vein poking out and carefully running up his arm. he still had a full head of greying hair, which stood up in certain places. he also had about a five day beard. he had his eyes closed and just sat there so peacefully.
he was just so beautiful. despite the fact that he’s probably a good 35 years older than me.
