Am I the only one who walks down the sidewalk,
one foot in front of the other, slow and deliberate,
eyes to the ground,
heart to the skies,
while she spends a quiet moment
brooding over an innocent love?
Is there nobody left who cares
to give themselves wholly
to another human being
who is equally deserving?
Where is the love I used to dream of
now replaced by hookups, long nights, and stupor?
Us believers are here,
but sparsely dispersed,
hiding amongst those who have forgotten themselves
to the sin.
Have you, too, left us
– Left me,
“Am I the only one?”?
To my surprise,
you are here,
but shrouded in a mist so dense I can barely sense you.
Even if no one else believes,
And I hope that you find me someday,
In the sea of those who don’t.
