F Train East Houston m4w (LES)

you stood across the platform from me going d/t & we exchanged glances several times you smiled & waved before the train stopped the most beautiful minute I ever held you are thin like an album tell me the color of your dress do you know how it is when you are the only one waiting if there is a place further from me I beg you do not go into the night now it’s 4 am but maybe you’ll read this & remember cause baby there’s nothing that distracts but your sweet face do not forget me
