I saw you through the window of the
Busy Bee Café,
as you were staring aimlessly over a
cup of coffee.
I thought about stopping just to pass
the time of day,
but it looked as if you were in need
of no company.
Your hand mindlessly stirred that cup
again and again,
while many thoughts clouded everything
Is this where you hide when you need
time to spend
alone, to think life’s intricate
Time lost in thought, while alone in a
is sometimes necessary to balance all
on your plate.
No one there to distract you or to get
up in your face,
no pressing appointments, hell they
can all wait.
I nodded in understanding and then
went on my way,
knowing I’d add the Busy Bee Café to
my list, “in red”.
It’ll be perfect for a cup of coffee and
Danish one day,
ignoring the meaningless cacophony as
I clear my head.
