the trouble with believing in what you cannot understand #28

When you raised your hand and pushed the button on the rail your eyes looked like you were lost and for a moment i wanted to stand up and help you.  but i didn’t.  i waited.  but i hoped for you.  i hoped and i gave you some part of me.  but you were not lost.  you were changing direction and you were feeling tentative.  you were nervous.  And when you left and i saw you walk to your destination i was relieved.  i passed by the church and i thought of you but then i thought of him.  aware that i was easing my conscience like him and that i was not thinking of you at all, once more i abandoned my belief in him and dismissed my hope in you for something real.
